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.
