Quote of the day: 5 November

What a treasure the Lord has given me in allowing me to live in Carmel! Here, everything is arranged with such simplicity, yet in such a way that, living it to the full, you can do everything. How can we live in the House of the Virgin, pleasing the Lord with her, yet not imitating her, as the Holy Mother desired?

About our featured image: A Discalced Carmelite nun spends a prayerful moment before the relics of Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus as they visit the Carmel of the Holy Spirit on Kirk Edge Road in Sheffield, England. The Kirk Edge Carmel was one of several venues for the 2008 pilgrimage of the relics in the United Kingdom. (Photo credit: catholicrelics.co.uk, catholicism / Flickr, some rights reserved)

  1. Indeed: you professed Carmelites are among life’s most richly blessed. I was at Liverpool Cathedral soon after St Therese’s relics. They still had the displays up. I enjoyed that.
