Read the full article for details about the schedule — including dates, times, and locations — for the 2018 novena at Holy Spirit Church.
Divine 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.
