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.

  6. A great way to start each day.

    Posted by Lary Marshall on 6th Apr 2017

    I had received a copy of this book about 9 years ago after I completed my RCIA studies and and joined the church. I have read it through twice now, and liked it so much I bought a copy for my daughter-in-law who will be joining the church next week at Easter. The book has a 3 page daily reading that gives you the tine and topics to really explore and reflect on your own thoughts on a wide range of subjects. I highly recommend this book. It was a great way to either start each day or end the day in prayerful thought.

    Posted by Diane Wirz on 2nd May 2016

    I've been meditating on the daily entries in the Divine Intimacy for years. Every time I read a passage I get something new that draws me closer to our Lord. Now I buy copies for my friends.

  10. Lay man searching for help

    Posted by Jerry on 27th Apr 2016

    When I first looked in the book and read the reviews I thought that it might be a book just for priest and nuns. But after receiving the book and now having used it for 6 days I feel life a totally different person. This has been the best purchase of my life and the expense of the book was worth every penny spent. I have an addiction that I have been struggling to overcome. I was having a hard time connecting with my Higher Power. Now when I get up every morning and read the daily bible readings, I take the "Divine Intimacy' book and do the meditation of the day which have open my eyes and give me a connected feeling with my Higher Power. The colloquy has made my prayer time feel more comfortable and makes it seem like I am being heard. My mind is deeper into the prayer process. I am confident that this book will help me in my road to overcoming my addiction along with my support group.
