Carmelite Library


This month’s “Carmelite Conversations” will be explore the unique character of five famous canonised saints who allowed themselves to be transformed by God – but only after much struggle! Sound familiar? The saints chosen are well known and include:
Teresa of Avila, John of the Cross, Therese of Lisieux, Elizabeth of the Trinity and Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein.)
Some questions for reflection and discussion include:
Were they born saints?
What was their path to holiness and to the Carmelite way of life?
What is their relevance for us today?
Despite differences in personalities, social and educational backgrounds, they also shared similarities – a deep love of the Carmelite Way. ‘To use a contemporary way of speaking ‘Carmel’ is the brand name for contemplation and holiness.’(Instrumentum Laboris)
