The Carmelite Nuns’ International On-Going Formation Course opened in Sassone (Rome) in a truly fraternal and ecclesial spirit with the self introduction of each participant.  Subsequently there was the rite of the blessing of the Icon of St Mary Magdalen de’ Pazzi, which had been commissioned from Sister Simona Nicita (monastery of San Giovanni la Punta, Italy). This Icon was presented to the Church as an invitation to service of the Mystery of the Love of God for humanity. It was carried in procession to the foot of the altar of the chapel, while the participants sang the Veni Creator, and this was followed by the celebration of the Eucharist.

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."
