The monthly Carmelite Conversations continue via zoom until June 2021.
In April, Paul Chandler will explore the topic The Legend of Saint Simon Stock and Scapular Devotion.
For most people their first and perhaps only contact with the Carmelite Order is the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, which remains to be a very popular Catholic devotion. Sadly, much of what is written about the scapular and Simon Stock,on the internet and elsewhere, is misleading or just plain wrong. Paul will lead us in exploring the true history of the Scapular, its purpose, and meaning for today.
Paul Chandler is an Australian Carmelite who studied theology in Rome and medieval spirituality in Toronto. He taught church history for 20 years in Melbourne and since 2010 has been spiritual director at Holy Spirit Seminary in Brisbane.

On the first Wednesday morning of each month we explore a topic related to the rich tradition of Carmelite Spirituality. Each month the session will be led by a person inspired by Carmelite Spirituality and so part of the broad community of the Carmelite Family.
