Ongoing Formation in Europe

The European Commission for Ongoing Formation has organized a series of three online sessions (via Zoom). This year, the Commission has chosen to focus on the religious (consecrated) life aspect of our lives as Carmelite friars. The first session is on Saturday, December 3.

Timothy Radcliffe, OP, will be the principal presenter. He is the former Master of the Dominican Order and the speaker at the recent Carmelite General Congregation in Rome. He has agreed to repeat his talks from the General Congregation on the vows of obedience and chastity to which he will also add a third talk on the vow of poverty. After each presentation there will be a brief opportunity to dialogue with Fr. Timothy.

The Commission sees these sessions as providing an opportunity for each of member of the region to explore what consecrated life means for us as Carmelite today: in one’s own life and in one’s experience of the life of the Order. The idea is to use these reflections to help us identify any gaps between what we profess as religious and how we actually live. The goal would be to find practical ways to help ourselves to overcome them. 

The remaining sessions will be on February 4, 2023 and April 29, 2023.

Some further material for reflection will be sent before each of the ongoing formation sessions to help with individual and communal reflection.
