Thursday. Beyond the moments of praying, “prayer” is that intimacy with God that, “enlarges the soul;” thus, the soul learns how to live in more loving ways. In your prayer today, ask for your soul to be enlarged so that it reaches out to all to whom it is sent.

Wednesday. As God draws us into deeper intimacy, we delight, with awe, in the gift of God’s love transforming us into the very likeness of God. With a grateful heart, pray in stillness today.

God’s Garden, March 16, 2016

The geographic Mount Carmel that we take our Carmelite name from is a mountain range along the Mediterranean in Israel. It is a green oasis surrounded by desert; hence, its name “Carmel,” which means “the Garden of God” in Hebrew. The metaphorical Carmel is a way of life, our disposition as we make our spiritual path up Mount Carmel.

The images and insights presented here represent a small sampling of what has bloomed in “God’s Garden” over the course of our 800-year existence. Welcome to our Carmelite garden; we hope you are nourished by what grows here and invite you to comment and share it with others.

Monday. For Therese, prayer is effortless and is all about a loving relationship: “lifting up of the heart…a glance, toward heaven.” In your prayer today, approach Jesus as your most intimate friend and speak with Him from the depth of your heart.

Saturday. In all that we do, our attention needs to be focused on how to “draw souls” to God, that they too, “may praise Him always.” In your prayer today, ask that you be nourished by the desire to call others to God’s saving embrace.

Friday. Always in communication with Jesus no matter what she was experiencing, Therese’s whole life was a prayer. As you pray today, approach Jesus with the same confidence and love, knowing that he is always present to you whether “in the midst of trial…(or) in joy.”

As Carmelites We live our life of allegiance to Jesus Christ and to serve Him faithfully with a pure heart and a clear conscience through a commitment to seek the face of the living God (the contemplative dimension of life), through prayer, through fraternity, and through service (diakonia). These three fundamental elements of the charism are not distinct and unrelated values, but closely interwoven.
