Tuesday Book Review: Divine Intimacy

By | Nov 18, 2008

Divine Intimacy: Meditations on the Interior Life for Every Day of the Liturgical Year, by Father Gabriel of St. Mary Magdalen, OCD.

Steeped in the Carmelite mystical traditions, Divine Intimacy is a tool for drawing closer to God.  If you are just learning to habitualize daily prayer and conversation with God, Divine Intimacy is a tool to help you along the way.

For each day, Divine Intimacy gives two meditations based on the readings for the day, and then provides a colloquy to assist you in beginning your conversation with God.  Divine Intimacy “seeks to arrange meditations in such a way that in the course of one year the most important problems of the spiritual life and all the supernatural realities met with in the interior life will have been reviewed.” (From the Preface)

I spent a year working through Divine Intimacy over a decade ago, but I still keep my copy near and refer to it in times of need.  It’s a beautiful volume that can help you find your voice with God and your path in this life.

I chose to review Divine Intimacy now because the year of meditations starts with the beginning of the liturgical year, which is the first Sunday of Advent.  If you want to begin the Divine Intimacy meditations at the beginning, you only have a couple of weeks to get your copy.
