First edition it appears came out in the fifties Today I got my own copy in Arabic from the Carmelites of Lebanon It is a sheer delight to read In the first chapter he draws a beautiful image of the loving mother who is God likened to She has to wean her child I just loved this paragraph and we are fortunate that the book is also online for reading and on the Carmelites s site themselves straight from the mouth of the hourse Here is what John of the Cross says2 It should be known then that God nurtures and caresses the soul after it has been resolutely converted to his service like a loving mother who warms her child with the heat of her bosom nurses it with good milk and tender food and carries and caresses it in her arms But as the child grows older the mother withholds her caresses and hides her tender love she rubs bitter aloes on her sweet breast and sets the child down from her arms letting it walk on its own feet so that it may put aside the habits of childhood and grow accustomed to greater and important things The grace of God acts just as a loving mother by re engendering in the soul new enthusiasm and fervor in the service of God With no effort on the soul s part this grace causes it to taste sweet and delectable milk and to experience intense satisfaction in the performance of spiritual exercises because God is handing the breast of his tender love to the soul just as if it were a delicate child 1 Pt 22 31 this concept is so special to me as it reminds me of Psalm 131as it says 1 My heart is not proud O LORD my eyes are not haughty I do not concern myself with great matters or things too wonderful for me 2 But I have stilled and uieted my soul like a weaned child with its mother like a weaned child is my soul within me 3 O Israel put your hope in the LORD both now and forever
