Poetry as Prayer

Poetry is beauty for the mind, heart…and the soul.

Socrates believed beauty is a thing that “slips in and permeates our souls.”  It is our hope that the beauty of these poems will touch your souls as well.      

Music has been individually selected to enhance your experience of each poem written by members of our Carmelite famliy.
