Electronic newsletter for the Lay Carmelites II-No2-MMXV


With great joy we present the new edition of the electronic bulletin for the Carmelite Laity. In this third publication we want to share a major event that gathered large crowds: the Congress of the Third Order of Carmelites of Asia and Australia held in the Philippines.

This edition also highlights the figure of our sister St. Teresa de Jesus, Doctor of the Church, because the Carmelite Family all around the world is celebrating the V Centenary of her birth. We thank you for reading this E-bulletin and for the suggestions that you constantly send us for the next editions. God bless you!

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."
