Culture and Spirituality in dialogue


The Institutum Carmelitanum and the community of St. Albert’s International Centre (CISA) have organised a series of events under the title, "Bellezza del Carmelo... tra pittura, musica e poesia", (The Beauty of Carmel, picture, music and poetry), that will be held at CISA on the 3rd Thursday of each of the three coming months, from 7.00 p.m to 8.30 p.m.

The purpose of these events is to help people to get to know figures and themes from the Carmelite tradition that are important both for their contribution to culture and their significance for spirituality.

The first event is planned for the 15th of March. It will be conducted by Fr. Emanuele Boaga, O.Carm. on the theme, “Holy Mary of Mount Carmel: iconography”. That will be followed on the 19th of April by Federico Truffi of the University of London, who will talk about, “Semblances of beauty: the madrigals of Bartolino da Padova”, a Carmelite composer of the 14th century. The series will end with a presentation by Andrea Severi, of the University of Bologna, with the title, “Adolescence: The Poetry of Baptist of Mantua”.

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."
