The Institutum Carmelitanum and the community of St. Albert’s International Centre (CISA) have organised a series of events under the title, "Bellezza del Carmelo... tra pittura, musica e poesia", (The Beauty of Carmel, picture, music and poetry), held at CISA. The purpose of these events is to help people to get to know figures and themes from the Carmelite tradition that are important both for their contribution to culture and their significance for spirituality.


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."
