The Carmelite Journey: Second Edition, second printing
  • subtitles Product description

    Second Edition. The Carmelite Order - an ancient religious family in the Catholic Christian tradition - has offered encouragement and sure guidance to those journeying towards God since its origins in the Holy Land around the year 1200. Through its contemplative spirituality of prayer, community-building and service, "Carmel" has produced some of the greatest saints in the history of the Church. Their insights into nurturing an ever-deeper relationship with God and with neighbour - often in the most ordinary circumstances of life - continue to inspire Carmelite religious and laity around the world to this day. This lavishly illustrated book introduces in an accessible way the spirituality and heritage of the Carmelites to those approaching the tradition for the first time, as well as being a useful formation resource for those already familiar with Carmel's riches. Its twenty reflections on different aspects of the Carmelite way of life will provide a source not only of information but also inspiration. It has been edited by Johan Bergström-Allen, who is a member of the Carmelite Third.Order Secular (a Lay Carmelite). He has a particular interest in the Order's initial and ongoing formation programmes.
