Nuns and Sisters Commission 2013-2019

Mario Alfarano

The communion between the various components of the Carmelite Family is expressed through effective communication, by which we are enriched by giving each other, and a good cooperation, especially in the service of the new evangelization. In this way,

the joy of the creative fecundity that comes from the multi-faceted incarnation of the Carmelite charism (Const. 28), manifests itself in the Church and in the world. The General Chapter has decided that there will be a full-time General Delegate that fosters communion and collaboration among the friars, nuns, hermits and nuns.

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."
