Nazareth, a Model

Divine Intimacy Calendar

Divine Intimacy CalendarDivine Intimacy by Fr. Gabriel of St. Mary Magdalen, O.C.D., is based on the Teresian method of prayer. I have found it a rich source of meditation and highly recommend it. If you are using Divine Intimacy for meditation and would like to follow the liturgical seasons, you may be interested in downloading the free 2017 calendar guide prepared by Chris Larmour PDF— a former seminarian, who created and continues to maintain the calendar as a labor of love.
