these are early meditations of Charles Rich last published by St. Bede's.

The Holy Dybbuk:
these are excerpts from the voluminous correspondence of Charlie to Ronda Chervin, published by St. Bede's.
The Embrace of the Soul: Reflections on the Song of Songs - (St. Bede's) Ronda edited and condensed Charlie's manuscript at the suggestion of his spiritual director. Later, Robert Hupka, the sponsor of these books, disciple, and friend, had published the original facsimile to preserve the original under the title below this one.

How to be Really Rich:
Notes on the Song of Songs - see Embrace of the Soul.

Hungry for Heaven:
The Story of Charles Rich, Contemplative by Ronda Chervin. This biography might be read at the same time as the next book since each book has its own viewpoint.

Charlie's own account of his life, though less organized than Hungry for Heaven, provides a sense of how he wrote when not heavily edited and condensed and gives his own very supernatural account.

Letters for Eternity:
Collected from the Correspondence of Charles Rich with Ronda Chervin - these are excerpts from later letters.

St. John of the Cross:
a small volume of writings by Charlie on John of the Cross, his favorite spiritual writer.
