    The Carmelites? Who are we?

    ROOT

    The Holy Land, Mount Carmel to be exact. A mountain celebrated for its sheer beauty. Stretching out into the deep blue of the Mediterranean Sea Mount Carmel in the springtime of the year is a glow with the vivacious colouring of flowering shrubs and plants. A symbol for the beauty of Mary. On that mountain the first Carmelites came together, a unique group. Laymen, most of them, living as hermits in community. They took as their model one who appealed to many monks in the West, the Prophet Elijah.

Carmel responds to Covid-19

 

Today people feel a helplessness that they have never felt before. In the face of a virus that spreads rapidly and has led to the death of many thousands of people throughout the world, we are caught between fear and hope, given that along with those who have died, an even greater number have been cured. The General Curia, by means of this website, wishes to offer a space that will help people to pray, for themselves and for the people they love.

1) We offer a daily Lectio divina: a prayerful reading of the Word of God,
2) Links to websites: streaming the celebration of the Eucharist on Sundays and weekdays,
3) A reflection corner: casting a Carmelite eye over all that is happening and bring to peoples’ attention some areas that we risk neglecting in the desire to deal with the frontline of the pandemic.
