Message for the World Day of Cloistered Life

Fr. Míċeál O’Neill, O. Carm., the prior general, has sent a letter to each enclosed Carmelite monastery in the world on the occasion of the Church’s celebration of World Day of Cloistered Life or Pro Orantibus Day (For Those Who Pray).

In the letter, dated November 18, 2022, the prior general says:

“By your dedication to God, you adorn and strengthen the Carmelite Order throughout the world and you offer to the Carmelite family, amid the many gifts that express Carmel’s love for silence and solitude, the example of cloistered life, as a way of making space for God in our lives and deepening our love for God.” He then reflects on family life today and calls on their communities to become one that “stands before God and finds its dignity in responding everyday not with marvels  beyond us, but with the simple knowledge that God is love and in him we find love.”

This annual celebration on November 21 is connected to the Feast of the Presentation of Mary. The day is intended to support—both spiritually and materially—the gift of the cloistered and monastic life. Pope Francis has spoken of the day as “an opportune occasion to thank the Lord for the gift of so many people who, in monasteries and hermitages, dedicate themselves to God in prayer and in silent work.

In 1953 Pius XII first introduced the idea of the Church reflecting on those who have answered the vocation to cloistered life. It is celebrated locally in the monasteries of men and women. In 2018, Pope Francis held a convention organized by the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life at the Pontifical Lateran University. Entitled “Deepening Vultum Dei Quaerere and Cor Orans,” the gathering of 300 cloistered women, studied the two relatively recent Church documents. Vultum Dei Quaerere, was written by Pope Francis and issued on June 29, 2016. The implementing instruction, entitled Cor Orans, was written by the Vatican Dicastery for Consecrated Life and issued on April 1, 2018.

These two documents introduce new aspects for the living out of this state of life in the Church. They also emphasize the importance of this vocation for the Church and the world. Pope Francis reminded contemplatives in Vultum Dei Quaerere that they intercede for the world like Moses. “Now, as then,” the Pope wrote, “we can conclude that the fate of humanity is decided by the prayerful hearts and uplifted hands of contemplative women." He has also said that those who devote the whole of their lives to the contemplation of God “are a living sign and witness of the fidelity with which God, amid the events of history, continues to sustain His people.”
