Joint Meeting of the O.Carm and OCD General Councils

Before the plenary meeting of our General Council (13-25 September), on 11 September the now customary joint meeting of the O.Carm and OCD General Councils was held in the Istituto “Madonna del Carmine” at Sassone, Italy. A number of topics of common interest were discussed, some experiences were evaluated and shared, and a few projects were planned. Among these a proposed Dictionary of Carmelite Saints”. The meeting was held in a fraternal atmosphere with the evident desire to grow in knowledge of each other and to engage in common projects.
The next meeting will take the form of a seminar in the “Stella Maris” priory on Mount Carmel in the Holy Land from 28 November to 5 December, 2010.

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."
