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 Saint John XXIII“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.’
