For Lent I am happy to present Susan Ehlert's film of the Stations of the Cross behind the Basilica of Saint Therese at Lisieux. This six-minute film blends the photos of the Stations with music and with images and texts of Therese. As we accompany Jesus in His dying and His rising, may God grant us to understand the meaning of His death and His resurrection and to let it be reflected in our lives.
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."
