Hi Sister !

Divine Intimacy is a wonderful book . . . unfortunately, I don't know where to find it in mp3.

However, I can direct you to this site:

www.stl-ocds.org/mp3s.html

Our OCDS community produces these brief 2 minute to 5 minute "Meditations from Carmel" in mp3 format and for podcasting. Many of these extracts from the writings of the Carmelite Saints are referenced by Fr. Gabriel in his book.

Hopefully this helps some!

Dave

Here is the updated link:

http://www.meditationsfromcarmel.com...nt/mp3-library

The podcasts on this page are organized by Saint for easy reference.

Hope this helps!

Thanks so much Dave - What a great resource this is going to be. I am an Aspirant with the OCDS (secular Carmelites), beginning an exciting journey. I want to get to know these Carmelite saints well. This will help a lot. I also decided to get a Kindle. I can read books on it in print as large as I need. Yesterday I found 3 of the 4 books of "Divine Intimacy" available for it. Thanks again for your help. I'm in the midst of a feast! Geraldine

Hi Geraldine -

I will pray for your discernment. I too am OCDS ... formation director for the community that puts together the website you've been visiting.

I've been giving a series of talks on "Our Carmelite Promise" ... 3 of 10 or so talks have been completed and are now posted on the website here:

http://www.meditationsfromcarmel.com...ormation-talks

These open as pdfs and you can enlarge the text size if that helps. Perhaps these will be helpful as you further discern your call.

Blessings and peace in Carmel,
Dave

Thanks again, Dave. It was during Advent of last year that I heard the Lord calling me to a holier life. I had once read some of St. John of the Cross, and "The Cloud of Unknowing. I find St. Teresa of Avila someone I can relate to. She doesn't set impossible standards that make one feel inadequate - she is very practical and realistic for a mystic. I believe this is the kind of spirituality I am being led to - thus OCDS. I've attended 4 meetings now; and feel very much at home in that setting. Your prayers are very much appreciated. I guess I'm a little off topic; but I just had to respond to your kindness. Thanks again. Geraldine
