The Secular Order of Carmel

Our Father General discusses the role of lay Carmelites. His Reverence's entire letter can be read HERE.
The spiritual relationship which exists between the friars, the nuns of the cloister and the Secular Carmelites of the Order is a source of great wealth for each one of us as individuals and for the Order. It is also a source of grace and of dynamism for the Church which we serve and for the world, which needs to enter into the knowledge of the presence of God.

I am in the middle of reading Fr. Deeney's new book on the Secular Order. It really is an eye opener to realize what we are called to in this Order and that we ARE the Order...not just an extension. How blessed to have this vocation!
