Finding Divine Intimacy by Fr Gabriel of St Mary Magdalen – A Review

For a long number of years, I have returned time and again to my treasured Divine Intimacy daily readings by Fr Gabriel of St Mary Magdalen. I have pieces of paper stuffed between the pages of my favourite readings – those which really touched me on a specific day, reminding me of trials past. And I have quotes from Divine Intimacy in my prayer cards – well thumbed and cherished. I’m not able to find online quotes from Divine Intimacy – but this review will introduce the book.

St Matthew and the Angel by Caravaggio

In his Apostolic letter Porte Fidei, Pope Benedict XVI exerted that we as Catholics should make conscious efforts to understand our faith more deeply.  "Knowledge of faith opens a door into the fullness of the saving mystery revealed by God."

Each week, we continue our spiritual journey and Pope Benedict XVI's desire for continued formation.  A new link to Vatican documents, Catholic news articles, youtube videos and Catholic writings from on-line magazines and journals will be published below.  It is our hope that you will find the articles and documents relevant - both in timing of our liturgical year and in the current events of the secular world in which we live.

May you grow in holiness through a deepened knowledge, wisdom and understanding of our faith.  It is our hope that the Holy Spirit works in your hearts and fills you with the desire to explore many more treasures that are opened from these links.
