Wednesday. Teresa knew that we are able to remain faithful to our commitment to God only with God’s grace, no matter whether we are someone in a leadership position or an ordinary worker. During your prayer today, ask for the grace you need to live your daily life with faithfulness and love.

God’s Garden, June 22, 2016

PCM Province - Wed, 2016-06-22 05:46


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.

Tuesday. Let us humbly acknowledge our need for God’s mercy when we “commit a fault,” rather than find excuses. Pray today for a humble and contrite heart

Monday. God dwells freely with those who offer hospitality openly with little attention given to “their own appetites and pleasures.” Pray today for that singleness of heart drawing you to God alone.

Sunday. An experience of the power and wisdom of God here on earth is only an inkling of the abode where the King “takes His delight.” In your prayer today, express gratitude to God for the gifts you have been given.

Friday. Do not seek the things of heaven i.e. “beatific knowledge” here on earth, but rather focus on giving glory to God and being satisfied with the gifts given to you in prayer. As you pray today, depend only on God’s unconditional love.

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.
