Reflections of the Priors General on Pope John Paul II

Falco Thuis (1971 - 1983)

Falco Thuis, Prior General from 1971 until 1983, met Pope John Paul II shortly after his election. Fr. Falco was a member of the Council of the Union of Superiors General (USG) when the pope gave a talk to the Superiors General of the various Orders which was seen by some as rather harsh. One of the points dealt with religious making an option for the poor which often was quite radical. In some Church circles, this commitment was seen as the religious choosing to be communists.

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.
