Product Description

Divine Intimacy - Meditations on the interior life for every day of the Liturgical year

This Book of Meditations is a classic and is seeped in Carmelite spirituality. For every day it offers two meditations, in liturgical arrangement, that enable the soul to enter the conscious presence of God and to reflect on the theme of the day. These are followed by a "˜Colloquy' that helps the person at prayer to start a friendly conversation with God where acts of praise and love, petition and thanksgiving are made, together with good resolutions for the future. Here we are at the very heart of prayer, which is a heart-to-heart encounter in faith with the living God.

Divine Intimacy is the highest state attainable on earth. In this union of love, the soul produces acts of love which have an immense apostolic influence on a multitude of souls. This knowledge of the ways that lead to God, according to the teaching of the renowned Spanish mystics, is distilled into the pages of this book.

"This book of meditations is meant for all priests, seminarians, religious, the devout laity, all who aspire to greater union with God: that is, to divine intimacy." Pope John XIII

"This Book of Meditations on the interior life for every day of the liturgical year is a pearl of great price. For spiritual reading and personal prayer, it is a treasure, providing sound guidance on the journey of prayer, and a safe companion on the road to holiness and to intimate union with God." Bishop Philip Boyce O.C.D, Bishop of Raphoe, Ireland.

About the Author: Father Gabriel of St. Mary Magdalen, O.C.D., was a Discalced Carmelite priest who became one of the most revered masters of the spiritual life. He acquired a vast knowledge of the ways that lead to holiness and to union with God. His experience with souls, whom he guided to the heights of perfection, was outstanding. He was an expert in the spiritual and mystical doctrine of St. Teresa of Jesus (Avila) and of St. John of the Cross. The Discalced Carmelite nuns of the Monastery of St. Joseph in Rome were the heirs of the Father Gabriel's vast output of published works and private manuscripts. For ten years, he guided these nuns as their confessor and spiritual director, and it was they who helped him to arrange his material in line with the course of the liturgical year, while following the ascent of the soul to transforming union with God, or to "˜Divine Intimacy.'

Leatherbound. 1216 pages.

  1. Best Spirtual Reflections Book

    Posted by Jason B. on 23rd Jun 2015

    In my opinion, this is the best spiritual book after the Bible. If one is looking to deepen their relationship with Christ and grow and understand things more in spiritual terms, this book will not disappoint.


  2. Indeed - Divinely Intimate.

    Posted by Mykal Banta on 21st May 2015

    The wisdom of Father Gabriel is timeless. The book is set up for daily readings according to the liturgical calender. I have only had this book a few days, but it is already clear - due to the profound, spiritual insights found within - this will become part of my daily readings. Father Gabriel was the spiritual leader and teacher at the Monastery of St. Joseph's in Rome; and it is easy to see why he was so very revered and loved. This book is a tremendous comfort and light in a sometimes very dark world for the spiritually inclined. I love it. And, into a already very rich bargain, it is beautifully bound and presented.


  3. Excellent spiritual reading

    Posted by Unknown on 22nd Mar 2015

    The design and the content of the book are excellent. The day by day set up is easy to follow even though the language of the liturgical year is a little different than it was when the book was written. Excellent formation.


  4. Inspirational Reading

    Posted by Loren libby on 5th Mar 2015

    Other than the Bible, this is the best and most inspirational book I have ever read. The insights to spiritual growth are amazing and no matter how many times you read it, the treasures continue to unfold. Divine Intimacy is truly a gift worth giving to yourself and to others. This book is a must have for anyone interested in their spiritual and personal growth as a Christian. An absolute treasure.


  5. Just Beginning

    Posted by Unknown on 7th Jan 2015

    I have not been reading long, but I know this book is helping me in my faith.


  6. 5 years of using

    Posted by Joe on 17th Dec 2014

    I continue to get new insights from this book. I bought this one for a gift. I am a little disappointed as this volume is not quite as nice (no ribbon marker, lower quality cover, etc) HOWEVER this does not lesson the content of the writing. I hope the recipient will be able to find all that I found and more.


  7. An Excellent Book of Meditation

    Posted by JT on 8th Dec 2014

    Have only had it for a few days but this book of meditation and prayer is just what I was looking for. This method is simple and straightforward to adopt. And while it seems so attractive, if embraced, could be so powerful.

  9. Inspired by the Holy Spirit

    Posted by Unknown on 17th Sep 2014

    This precious book is like walking alongside of Jesus and He taking you by the hand and leading you to grow and blossom in all that He asks of you through Holy Scripture on our journey to Paradise.
