Carmel… Hidden Union with God
At the core of every Carmelite is an intense drawing to contemplative prayer. It has been said that we are explorers of an inner place of intimacy with God. Our life is an interior journey of growing in and through prayer which is lived in loving relationship with Christ.
The Order has the Blessed Virgin Mary as Mother and Patroness, “it takes the mystery of her life and her union with Christ as its ideal model of consecration. Every sister finds in Mary a mother and teacher in the ways of the Spirit who will conform her to Christ and lead her to the heights of holiness.” (Carmelite Constitutions)
