If you love Leonard rebinds and traditional Catholic spirituality today is your lucky day!
Timothy has graciously allowed me offer this beautiful edition of “Divine Intimacy” on his blog (I’m getting married, need the money).
Up for offer is a mint Leonard’s rebind of Baronius Press’ edition of the Carmelite classic “Divine Intimacy”. This is a true classic of Catholic/Carmelite spirituality and was even highly recommended by Pope St. John XXIII.
Here’s how Baronius describes it:
“This Book of Meditations is a classic and is steeped in Carmelite spirituality. For every day it offers two meditations, in liturgical arrangement that enable the soul to enter the conscious presence of God and to reflect on the theme of the day. 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.”
Carmelite bishop Philip Boyce of Ireland said of this work: "This Book of Meditations on the interior life for every day of the liturgical year is a pearl of great price. For spiritual reading and personal prayer, it is a treasure, providing sound guidance on the journey of prayer, and a safe companion on the road to holiness and to intimate union with God."
I chose to have this edition rebound in a soft cover spindled goatskin leather. The spine has raised bands and there are two silk ribbons for markers. As always Leonard’s did a wonderful job and were even able to save the original marbled end pages. The book is smythe sewn.
The book normally retails for about $60 and the rebind cost me about $200 (US funds).
I’m willing to part with it for a very reasonable and fair price.
