The first point is the three characteristics of the experience of God in the Bible, the second point is Carmel’s quest of the Living God in the Light of the Bible, and the third point is witnessing and sharing Carmel’s quest of the Living God as a practical point. and action.


Carmel's Quest for the Living God: A Lay Perspective
Dolores Leckey

This lecturer gives us her own lay perspective of how, over many years in her quest for the living God, Carmelites have been pivotal in her own spiritual journey. Her adult spiritual awakening happened when she was 27 and was diagnosed with Rheumatic Fever. A long recovery provided much time for contemplation. She learned to pray and eventually journeyed to Avila and discovered the importance of Teresa’s work. She was impressed by how, in earlier years in the midst of caring for family, civic commitments, attempts to nurture the life of the mind, attending to vocation of marriage, Teresa - a 16th Century mystic, gave her - a lay woman of the 20th Century, both hope and a practical methodology for finding some center in the midst of the complex responsibilities of life.


Carmel's Quest for the Living God: Hope in Dark Times

Fernando Romeral, O. Carm.

Edith Stein and Titus Brandsma may have been the two greatest Carmelites of our modern times. They were, among many other things scholars, intellectuals, mystics, thinkers, and significant figures in the history of the 20th Century in Europe. But above all, they were two seekers of the Living God, two pilgrims in the journey to God. In our modern time, a complicated time for the Church, for religion, for humanity, they help us to assume the challenge to seek, quest, search, and follow the Living God. They were both great intellectuals and scholars and at the same time close to the people. They were both strong and firm in their principles and at the same time human, understanding, flexible. And they were both considered the patron saints of the spiritual union of the whole Carmelite family for many reasons.
