With joy and fraternity we offer you a new edition of E-Bulletin for the Carmelite Laity. This time around, you will find some testimonies from people who have come closer to God through the Carmelite spirituality that we offer in our various groups and institutions.
Likewise, we will read the news of the re-foundation of the Third Order in Sergipe, in northeastern Brazil, where this group had almost disappeared, and was reborn due to the interest of the local bishop and the friars who returned to work with the faithful of this place.
We are also happy to learn about the constancy of the Carmelite Family in the Philippines that met last July completing 23 years of consecutive annual meetings. One of its members offers us a short reflection on Saint Teresa, and with it, we close the V Centenary of the birth of this great saint and our sister.
Lay Carmelites also participate in many ministries in the Church. In this issue we highlight some of the apostolates of the Lay Carmelite and their great experience in these places.
We are pleased to announce the new official website of the Lay Carmelites. The Website provides the latest news, activities and events of the Carmelite Laity around the world, and also features many articles and lectures from and for the laity. Please bookmark and visit it at www.ocarm.org/lay/en
We welcome your comments and suggestions, and would like to ask you to contribute news, articles and activities from your communities to enrich this website.
