Those looking for a profound guide to "living the Mass" in one's daily life need look no further. Fr. Gabriel of St. Mary Magdalene's classic work Divine Intimacy is deeply steeped in Carmelite spirituality and the thought of several mystics, eminently practical and applicable for growth in the spiritual life in all vocational states, and one of the most nourishing and profound works on liturgical prayer avaiable in print today.
Offering two meditations for every day of the year, Divine Intimacy enables the soul to enter the conscious presence of God and to reflect on the theme of the day as presented in the traditional liturgical calendar. 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.
