    Message from the Prior General


    Dear friends of Carmel,

    Firstly, I want to welcome those of you who are visiting this website of the Carmelite Order. New technologies offer us the possibility to get mountains of information. The website of the Carmelite Order actually wants to do more, it wants to provide you with a space for reflection, a space to be in contact with spirituality, with tradition and with the charism of Carmel, a place of encounter among all the members of the Carmelite Family: friars, nuns, religious sisters, lay people, Carmelite youth, and everyone who, for one reason or another, is interested in the spiritual world of Carmel.
