Carmelites: Secular Order of Discalced Carmelites

Christ the Lord instructs his disciples, “Be you perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect.” 

The Carmelite, in union with Mary, seeks to respond to the Lord’s invitation to evangelical perfection through assiduous prayer, penance, and loving fidelity to daily duties.  Christic meditation, leading to infused contemplation is the foundation of all Carmelite spirituality.  Although we live in the world, we are spiritual hermits, preferring above all else, “to stay each in his own cell or nearby, day and night meditating on the Law of the Lord.”  We pray daily with the whole Church by daily attendance at Mass and recitation of the Divine Office.  Our communion with God becomes a source of redemption of the temporal order, created good by God, but marred by sin.  We give witness to the world as we echo Elijah’s proclamation, ”The Lord of Hosts lives, before whom, I stand.”
