The word "Carmelite" takes its origin from Mount Carmel, the mountain of the Prophet Elijah, which in the biblical and patristic traditions means fertility, beauty, generosity and wealth of grace. All this, adapted to the spiritual life, is realised in those who embrace the Carmelite contemplative life.

After years of preparation and experiences of mutual cooperation in various fields between the Italian monasteries, including through annual meetings of the prioresses, the Carmelite nuns belonging to three areas in Italy, namely the Italian, Neapolitan provinces and the General  Commissariat of “La Bruna”, have agreed to formalize this process.

Diocese: Girona

History:

The foundation of this monastery is one of those events where the hand of God is clearly evident. It was completed without material means or help from important people, by a simple religious woman who was outside the cloister of another Roman Carmelite monastery sacked by the masons during the papacy of Pius IX.

Diocese: Pitigliano

To talk or write about the Carmel of Cerreto, in the province of Grosseto, could be just a hypothetical discourse or a deduction, because it is a seed which is in bud; tomorrow it will grow into a plant, as Jesus says in the Gospel about the mustard seed. It is more exact to talk of the Carmel of Cerreto than of a monastery,

It was on 8 July 1982 when the 16 year old Carmelite community of Guiguinto (Philippines) received the invitation from the Bishop of the Diocese of Cabanatuan, Mgr. Vicente P. Reyes, D.D., to found a monastery in his diocese to pray for the increase of priestly and religious vocations, and the sanctification of priests and Christian families.

The Monastery of Divine Love

Diocese: Solsona

The Carmelite friars, who had been in Tàrrega for several centuries, came to know that there was the possibility of founding a monastery of nuns in their city. The prior at the time, Fr. Miguel Basagañas (Cat), took advantage of the presence of the then bishop of Solsona, Mgr. Vicente Enrique Tarancón, in Tàrrega, to suggest that the proposed foundation be one of Carmelite nuns. The bishop gladly agreed, because the Carmelites were willing to give spiritual assistance to the nuns.
