"Lectio Divina", a Latin term, means "divine reading" and describes a way of reading the Scriptures whereby we gradually let go of our own agenda and open ourselves to what God wants to say to us. In the 12th century, a Carthusian monk called Guigo, described the stages which he saw as essential to the practice of Lectio Divina. There are various ways of practicing Lectio Divina either individually or in groups but Guigo's description remains fundamental.

The Carmelites

The Carmelites? Who are we?


The Holy Land, Mount Carmel to be exact. A mountain celebrated for its sheer beauty. Stretching out into the deep blue of the Mediterranean Sea Mount Carmel in the springtime of the year is a glow with the vivacious colouring of flowering shrubs and plants. A symbol for the beauty of Mary.


Prior General , Fernando Millán Romeral, O.Carm

Message from the Prior General

Dear friends of Carmel,

Firstly, I want to welcome those of you who are visiting this website of the Carmelite Order. New technologies offer us the possibility to get mountains of information. The website of the Carmelite Order actually wants to do more,

Our Charism


How do we live our lives? What is our Charism?

A charism is a gift from God to the Church for the world. With regard to a Religious Order, the term refers to the gift which God gives to an individual or group to inspire the founding of a new religious family within the Church. This gift is handed down through the centuries and enriched by all who are called to live it.
