The third booklet from the Order’s General Commission for Evangelisation and Mission is entitled: The Word of God in our Carmelite Journey and is now available to be either read or downloaded, in booklet format, from the home page of the Order’s website.

Over the past three years the commission has produced two booklets, the first was entitled: To be a Carmelite Today: A Joy ever new, a Joy to be shared; the second entitled: Drinking from our own well: Joy in Contemplative Community (both available on the website….). In each of these booklets are set out reflections on the relationship between Pope Francis’ Evangeli Gaudium and our Carmelite charism and spirituality.

All members of the Carmelite family are invited to use this material at community meetings, Third Order gatherings, with prayer groups or individual reflection. Each booklet has seven sections and this latest one contains the following: 1. The Word that visits me in the silence of my solitude. 2. The Word that cuts to the heart. 3. The Word that is incarnated in daily life. 4.The Word that creates and sets us free. 5. The Word that compels me to proclaim. 6 The Word that is my refuge, my spiritual armour. 7. The Word that transforms me in 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. 

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."
