It was an accident landing here, but not purchasing - that was deliberate. Praise God! I had been unable to find a spiritual advisor but no longer as Fr. Gabriel’s work you will discover is graced with divine inspiration which passes on to you if you accept the challenges and endeavor on this path weaved within Carmelite Spirituality. Your closeness with God will increase beyond your hope. Read it like Lectio Divina and your soul will take heavenly flight. Enjoy the ascent!
I have only been using this book for the last week or so. The shipping was unbelievably fast (must be sped on by the prayers of the monks). The book so far is wonderful. It is very challenging to me at times (this is what I need). It is also beautifully written. I usually am not a fan of translated works. This one is very good with beautiful language. So far I can recommend highly. I already feel it has helped me to grow closer to Our Lord and his Blessed Mother.
I was drawn to the Monks’ website for their coffee, but was drawn to this great work. I have three pounds of coffee still unopened. I was more excited to crack open this beautiful book. I cannot say enough. Buy this and read/pray/think from it every day. After some research I learned it is not set up to use based off the current liturgical calendar and readings. It is from the readings and calendar from before Vatican II I guess. No problem-there are calendars online to sync it up better as it was originally intended.
No need in my opinion. This is an amazing work of spirituality. Just jump in!
It is truly a beautifully bound book too. You cannot beat the price and value on every level.
I am still excited by the coffee-but already am in love with Divine Intimacy!
They should have this as their primary item for sale with the great coffee as an afterthought!
One of the best books of Carmelite spirituality out there at the best price from Mystic Monks Coffee. Wonderful for daily reading, far better and more encouraging than Imitation of Christ. Sound theology mixed with the inspiring Carmelite message.
