Meeting of the Commission for Prayer and Liturgy

Meeting of the Commission for Prayer and Liturgy

The seventh meeting of the Commission for Prayer and Liturgy was held at the Curia on January 31 - February 1, 2019. The meeting was attended by Frs Michael Farrugia (Procurator General), Chairman, Edmondo Caruana (Mel), Giovanni Grosso (Ita) and Mario Esposito (SEL), Secretary. Frs Pius Robert Malik (Indo) was absent because of the difficulty of getting a visa and Giuseppe Midili (Ita) because of other commitments.

The first part of the meeting was dedicated to the review of last year's Liturgical Congress held in April 2018 in Sassone. The congress was well-received, and arrangements will be made for the publication of the reports and talks. During the second part, the Commission also completed its work on the Funeral Rites of the Order as well as completing a supplement containing sixteen Readings for the Saturday Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The Rituals for simple and solemn profession and of the Third Order previously approved ad experimentum are in the process of publication and although still waiting for the approval of the Carmelite liturgical calendar by the Congregation, the Commission is pushing forward with this project as well. Finally, some proposals and recommendations were formulated for consideration at the General Chapter of September 2019

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."
