The Holy Land, Mount Carmel to be exact. A mountain celebrated for its sheer beauty. Stretching out into the deep blue of the Mediterranean Sea Mount Carmel in the springtime of the year is a glow with the vivacious colouring of flowering shrubs and plants. A symbol for the beauty of Mary. On that mountain the first Carmelites came together, a unique group. Laymen, most of them, living as hermits in community. They took as their model one who appealed to many monks in the West, the Prophet Elijah.
|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."
