The Identity of the Secular Discalced Carmelite

The Identity of the Secular Discalced Carmelite

5-Session Retreat

Every vocation is a gift from God. He takes the initiative, but he allows us to respond freely. By responding to our vocation as Secular Discalced Carmelites we become who we truly meant to be in the image and likeness of God. Carmelites should be friends of Jesus, and this friendship demands constant inner transformation. We are called to perfect loving union with God while living in the world. Secular Carmelites live an evangelical life with a spirit of contemplative prayer in imitation of the Virgin Mary. These five sessions lead us to a deeper understanding of the gift of the Carmelite charism, and encourages us to embrace it in our everyday life.
