CARMELITE HISTORY AND SPIRITUALITY

  • Welcome!

    Message from the Prior General

    Dear friends of Carmel,

The website of the Carmelite Order actually wants to do more, it wants to provide you with a space for reflection, a space to be in contact with spirituality, with tradition and with the charism of Carmel, a place of encounter among all the members of the Carmelite Family: friars, nuns, religious sisters, lay people, Carmelite youth, and everyone who, for one reason or another, is interested in the spiritual world of Carmel.

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.
