Fifteenth Day of the General Chapter 2019

Fifteenth Day of the General Chapter 2019
77/2019 – 26 - 09

The 24° of September was the Carmelite Family Day. The day started with the Eucharist presided by Fr. Saverio Cannistrà O.C.D., who also shared with the assembly some reflections on the transmission of the Carmelite charism, underlining the challenges, the contents and the various methods in the transmission of charism and formation today.
Subsequently, some representatives of the various sectors of the Carmelite Family (Sr. Elena Maria Lopez Font O.Carm., Sr. Zélia Da Conceição Dias, CMSTGB, Francisco Javier Bernabeu Almela and Sabrina Rubio Pérez) gave their input in reply to the question of how we can be witnesses to this generation, starting from their own experiences as a nun, missionary sister and young lay Carmelites respectively.
In the afternoon, Fr. Mario Alfarano, Delegate for the nuns, presented his report, outlining the response of the Order to recent pontifical statements on cloistered life, the various foundations in recent times, together with other changes taken place in various of our monasteries.
The Prior General shared a reflection on “the Carmelite Family, good new for the Church and the World”, highlighting six keywords: Carmel, charism, contemplation, community, collaboration, celebration.
Following a shared reflection in linguistic groups and in plenary session, the day came to a conclusion with a fraternal family celebration .

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. 

All of these we live under the protection, inspiration and guidance of Mary, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, whom we honor as "our Mother and sister."
