Carmelite Library


This month’s Carmelite Conversation will be lead by Sr Miriam from the Carmelite Monastery in Kew. She writes:

Saint John of the Cross explained that when he wanted to express something of his experience of God’s beauty and transcendence, he found poetry a more apt vehicle for what he was trying to say.   Perhaps other Carmelites who tried to say something of what they had learned in prayer, also found this to be so. We will look at some of the poetry Carmelites have written over Carmel’s long history, to see if we too can sense a little of the well nigh inexpressible awe and love that poetic intimations of God’s beauty can evoke in us.
