Mary is totally dependent upon God and completely directed
towards him, and at the side of her Son, she is THE MOST PERFECT
IMAGE OF FREEDOM AND OF THE LIBERATION of humanity and of
the universe.

February: Dedicated to the Holy Family

Our Foundress, St Teresa of Jesus, tells us: “Prayer is an intimate sharing between friends; it means taking
time frequently to be alone with Him who we know loves us.”

November: Dedicated to the Holy Souls

reflect on how we can examine the quality of our response to our Christian and Carmelite vocation… how am I responding generously, charitably, faithfully, zealously?

October: Dedicated to the Holy Rosary

Christ does not force our will, he takes only what we give Him. He doesn’t give Himself entirely until He sees that we yield ourselves entirely to Him – St Teresa

August: Dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

I looked at the Catholic Calendar for August. Amazing! (Go look at it!) It’s full of Saints Rememoration days, Feasts, the Transverberation of our dear St Teresa of Jesus. My stand-out is the Transfiguration of the Lord and the Assumption of Our Blessed Lady. What a month!
