Dear Master: Letters on Spiritual Direction Inspired by St. John of the Cross
Susan Muto’s companion text to, and commentary on, St. John of the Cross’ celebrated poem, The Living Flame of Love, is told through an imaginative series of letters between St. John and one of his directees.
Dear Master is a companion text to, and commentary on, St. John of the Cross’ celebrated poem, The Living Flame of Love. This commentary is told through an imaginative series of letters between St. John and Dona Ana de Penalosa, the spiritual directee for whom he originally wrote The Living Flame of Love poem. Dona Ana’s letters contain questions of spiritual direction no different than ours of today: “Who am I most deeply?” “What is God asking of me?” “Have I the courage to answer his call?” In his replies, St. John provides general truths to guide us in our journey toward union with God.
St. John has been a source of inspiration to faith seekers, both religious and lay, for over 400 years. Profound and timeless, the works penned by the Spanish Doctor of the Church contain clear directives as fresh today as when he originally wrote them. Whether you are a beginner in search of a spiritual guide, or are at a more advanced stage of prayer, this work furnishes you with a wealth of wise counsel from one of the Church’s finest spiritual masters–St. John of the Cross.
