Edith Stein and Renewal

John Sullivan O.C.D.

“The new spirit already exists and will prevail.” Those words were coined by a young Ph.D., named Edith Stein during World War I to assure her sister it is worth hoping and worth working through current crises toward a better, a renewed future. We learn how Edith Stein, also St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, Carmelite Nun and co-patroness of Europe went resolutely ahead to find ways of renewal in the spirit-dominated realm that she could see at work as it unfolded.

The Exterior Life of Love

Fr John Sullivan, O.C.D.

Beginning with the words of Christ, Fr John Sullivan at the 2009 Congress indicates the goal of Carmel’s goal – not to seek some abstract ideas – but to love. Quoting Teresa of Jesus, John of the Cross and Therese of Lisieux, he shows us how we are called to an exterior life of love. Teresa leads us to encounter God in mysticism who “alone suffices” through the ordinary and mundane – through encountering others and the world. Therese in her desire to “spend her heaven doing good on earth” shows us the necessity of our mission to love here. OCDS communities are called to reach out to others for in the words of St John: “where there is no love, to put love and you will find love there.”
