Write to Spiritual Descendants of the Original Hermits on Mount Carmel for Prayer

Welcome to the Roman Catholic Hermits of Our Lady of Mount Carmel! PRAISE + JESUS!

Our Dear Friend in Jesus,

We are Spiritual Descendants
of the original Hermits on Mount Carmel, the roots of the Carmelite Order of the Ancient Observance. With great joy, hope and love, we come to share with you our life of unceasing prayer in the desert in communion with Jesus Christ, our Good News! Each of us, as a Hermit of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, strives to live in Christ a life of unconquerable faith in the living God. "Pure in heart and steadfast in conscience, we must be unswerving in the service of our Master" — Rule of St. Albert.

Ours is a Divine Call
to be the praying, healing, forgiving Christ in the Heart of the Church for the sanctification and salvation of priests and all our brothers and sisters in the human family – Constitutions #2. Whoever you are and wherever you are, know that we are praying for you day and night.

Jesus Christ, the Son of God and the Son of Man
shed His blood for you, personally. By the overshadowing of the Holy Spirit, He was conceived within the Virgin Mary and born in a stable in Bethlehem. Angels told poor, lowly shepherds about Jesus Christ, our Good News; they hurried to the stable, found Him and believed! "When they saw this, they made known what had been told them about this child; and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds told them" – Lk 2:17-18. "Mary treasured all these words and pondered them in her heart" – Lk 2:19.

Around that time, "wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, asking, 'Where is the child who has been born king of the Jews? For we observed his star at its rising, and have come to pay him homage'" – Matt 2:1-2. When they learned it was Bethlehem, "they set out; and there ahead of them, went the star that they had seen at its rising, until it stopped over the place where the child was . . . they were overwhelmed with joy . . . they saw the child with Mary, his mother; . . . they knelt down and paid him homage" – Matt 2:9-11. The wise men believed! "Then, opening their treasure chests, they offered him gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh" – Matt 2:11. The wise men offered the child their gold to receive his wisdom, their frankincense, a heavenly fragrance, to receive the consoling speech of the Holy Spirit and myrrh to foreshadow his death.

Because They Believed
"they departed for their own country by another way" – Matt 2:12.

In Love for God
our Father, Jesus Christ lived, died, and rose from the dead, for each one of His children - all peoples! Jesus calls you by name and says to you, personally: "As the Father loves me, so I also love you. Live on in my love" – Jn 15:9. Jesus Christ knows you, loves you, and walks with you, even if you may not realize that He is with you. Like the shepherds, the wise men and all who listen to Jesus, speaking to his and her heart, Jesus wants you to listen to Him now. "The Word of God is alive and effective, sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating even between soul and spirit, joints and marrow, and able to discern reflections and thoughts of the heart" – Heb 4:12. If you are happy, broken-hearted, confused, afraid, guilty, hopeful, joyful or peaceful, run to Jesus! He is waiting for you!

we are praying for you day and night! With our abiding love, prayer and thanks for listening,

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph,

Sister Mary of Jesus and St. Joseph, H.O.Carm.

The Holy Name of Jesus is the greatest power on earth.
Plant Jesus in your heart!

In fear, pray – JESUS!
In doubt, call – JESUS!
In sorrow, whisper – JESUS!
In peace, proclaim – JESUS!
In joy, sing – JESUS!
In love, be one with – JESUS!
Always cling to JESUS!

"Let us keep our eyes fixed on Jesus" – Heb 12:2.

Saint Teresa wanted her daughters to be like strong men, not weak women. So cultivate womanly gentleness with a virile, valiant spirit. Edith Stein before becoming Sister Teresa Benedicta described the essence of womanhood as follows "To surrender oneself to another through love and to possess this other wholly–this is the deepest longing of a woman's heart." – Friendship with Christ: Love and Service

Might it be Good for all of us & for Francis to Read about the "Gruesome Death of Arius"?

  I have read the letters of your piety , in which you have requested me to make known to you the events of my times relating to myself, and to give an account of that most impious heresy of the Arians , in consequence of which I have endured these sufferings, and also of the manner of the death of Arius . With two out of your three demands I have readily undertaken to comply, and have sent to your Godliness what I wrote to the Monks; from which you will be able to learn my own history as well as that of the heresy . But with respect to the other matter, I mean the death, I debated with myself for a long time, fearing lest any one should suppose that I was exulting in the death of that man. But yet, since a disputation which has taken place among you concerning the heresy , has issued in this question, whether Arius died after previously communicating with the Church ; I therefore was necessarily desirous of giving an account of his death, as thinking that the question woul
