Today is a day of fast for all Carmelites!! Tomorrow is the Feast day of all Carmelite Saints - Nov. 14th. Following that - November 15 is the Feast of all Carmelite Souls which falls on a Friday and we can again fast on that day as well as pray for our Carmelite friends who have gone before us.
I have finally summarized the last chapter of "I Want to See God" - under Formation. It is on Faith and its necessity for prayer. Let us give the Eternal Father praise for this great saint - Blessed Fr. Marie Eugene who left us these works for the sanctification of the Carmelite laity. We are blessed that it was written pre-Vatican II and gives an overview and a compilation of the great Carmelite Doctors on prayer.
Under Formation you will find a summary of all the chapters of the book. Come January, I will post these under a special heading so that with a click you may see these summaries by Chapter. I will then begin to post, starting January, the summaries of the chapters for "I Am A Daughter of the Church". These will be listed in the place where you now see "I Want to See God" - Under Formation.
I would still like to have the daily Office read so that while driving or busy - one can just listen and follow the prayers and therefore not miss a single Morning or Evening prayer. I will have to work on that with my daughter who helped me with this website. So much more to do for this website. I still need to post hymns as well - since it is empty.
A reminder that under Devotions - we do have the Little Office for the different days of the week/year. Since it is much simpler than the Liturgy of the Word - this can be done in this way. I encourage all to go there to read their Office if one is away from their book. These are all Word Documents so that they can be printed as well and placed in a binder for easy use.
Thanks to all of you that frequent this site - please share it with other Carmelites as more and more groups die out - we can be hermit Carmelites in our own homes and live as Our Lady secluded in our rooms with our sweet Lord & Master Jesus Christ.
Have a blessed feast day tomorrow and pray and eat less today! God bless!!
