I am pleased to see that What the Saints Said about Heaven (2011) from TAN has just appeared, and I'd just like to encourage Faithlife to continue adding more TAN books!

Perhaps better under it own thread but I would very much love to see (it got put here because I mistakenly believed it was a TAN Book, but by the time I found it decided to plough on a head and see if anyone else was interested in this modern classic):

Divine Intimacy

Father Gabriel of St Mary Magdalen, O.C.D.

 Baronius Press

"This book of meditations is meant for all priests, seminarians, religious, the devout laity, all who aspire to greater union with God: that is, to divine intimacy."

Pope Saint John XXIII

"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."

Bishop Philip Boyce O.C.D, Bishop of Raphoe, Ireland.

This Book of Meditations is a classic and is seeped 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.

Divine Intimacy is the highest state attainable on earth. In this union of love, the soul produces acts of love which have an immense apostolic influence on a multitude of souls. This knowledge of the ways that lead to God, according to the teaching of the renowned Spanish mystics, is distilled into the pages of this book.

About the Author: 
Father Gabriel of St. Mary Magdalen, O.C.D., was a Discalced Carmelite priest who became one of the most revered masters of the spiritual life. He acquired a vast knowledge of the ways that lead to holiness and to union with God. His experience with souls, whom he guided to the heights of perfection, was outstanding. He was an expert in the spiritual and mystical doctrine of St. Teresa of Jesus (Avila) and of St. John of the Cross. The Discalced Carmelite nuns of the Monastery of St. Joseph in Rome were the heirs of the Father Gabriel’s vast output of published works and private manuscripts. For ten years, he guided these nuns as their confessor and spiritual director, and it was they who helped him to arrange his material in line with the course of the liturgical year, while following the ascent of the soul to transforming union with God, or to ‘Divine Intimacy.’

Divine Intimacy - Meditations on the Interior Life for every day of the Liturgical Year. The original edition of Divine Intimacy was published in Italian under the title "Intimità Divina del P. Gabrielle di S. Maria Maddalena". This edition is the English translation by the Discalced Carmelite Nuns of Boston published under licence from Monastero S. Giuseppe – Carmelitane Scalze, Roma, Italia. This edition has been re-typeset using the text of the 1964 edition originally published by Desclée Company.

I see amazon kindle has a four volume edition that is  revised and expanded to offer meditations for the modern catholic Liturgy rather than the tridentine calendar. That edition seems to be under authority of Ignatius Press. I believe the one I recommended above was based on the 14th edition. In the newer edition (16th) each Sunday having readings for year A, B, C.  in 1971 it was decided to revise it and expand it for the new Liturgical calendar introduced after Vatican II. I am more familiar with the older edition but either would be nice.

I love "Divine Intimacy".  The Intro alone is worth the price of the book.  I would like to see it in Logos as well.

I'd like to see more TAN books, too.

It's made for Logos in using for a daily reading - if tagged properly it's almost like a lectionary! In fact maybe it should be?
