Visit to the Curia by the Ambassador of the Netherlands

This last July 19, the Ambassador of the Netherlands to the Holy See, His Royal Highness Prince Jaime Bernardo of Bourbon-Parma, accepted the invitation of the Prior General Fr. Fernando Millán Romeral, O.Carm., and paid a visit to our Curia in Rome. The Ambassador was welcomed by the prior of the community, Fr. Christian Körner, O.Carm. He was interested in the process of canonization of Blessed Titus Brandsma, and in different topics about the Order and its presence in various parts of the world. After dinner, together with the community members present in Rome, the Prior General gifted the Ambassador with a selection of books on Blessed Titus Brandsma, and with the Carmelite Monasticon of the Netherlands. The whole encounter took place in a delightful and relaxed atmosphere.

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."
