What is a Carmelite?

Posted on July 29, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , |

“A Carmelite, my darling, is a soul who has gazed on the Crucified, who has seen Him offering Himself to His Father as a Victim for souls and, recollecting herself in this great vision of the charity of Christ, has understood the passionate love of His soul, and has wanted to give herself as He did! And on the mountain of Carmel, in silence, in solitude, in prayer that never ends, for it continues through everything, the Carmelite already lives as if in Heaven: ‘by God alone.'”

(Bl. Elizabeth of the Trinity L133)
