Activities of the Prior General


The Prior General Fr. Fernando Millán Romeral, O.Carm. from the 10th to 13th January, while on his way to the United States of America to conduct the canonical visitation of the South West Provincial Commissariat, participated in the celebrations commemorating fifty years of Carmelite presence in the Dominican Republic. On that occasion he also visited four monasteries in the country (La Vega, Santo Domingo, Santiago and Monción).

Accompanied by the General Delegate for the nuns, Fr. Josef Jančář, O.Carm., he held a meeting with the federal councils of three Federations of Spanish monasteries (Flos Carmeli, Mater et Decor Carmeli and Mater Unitatis) from 6th to 7th March. Various issues were addressed regarding new norms for the Federation and other issues of interest to the nuns. The respective assistants for the Federations also participated. The Prior General spoke about projects for new foundations and the preparations for the up-coming General Chapter. The atmosphere of the meeting was friendly and joyful.

Besides these monasteries, the Prior General visited the foundation in Madrid on the occasion of the 400th anniversary (see CITOC-online 15/2013). In Italy he visited the monasteries in Jesi and Camerino, and the hermitage of Monteluro, which was affiliated to the Order over ten years ago.

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."
