The Spiritual Canticle

This commentary on the stanzas that deal with the exchange of love between the soul and Christ, its Bridegroom, explains certain matters about prayer and its effects. It was written at the request of Mother Ana de Jesús, prioress of the discalced Carmelite nuns of St. Joseph’s in Granada, in the year 1584.
