A poem testifies to a young Karol Wojtyla, an aspiring Carmelite
“After all, this love is the end for which we were created”
How should we express our commitment to obedience and compassion in the socio-cultural context in which we live?
Since the times of the holy prophet Elijah, our Father, and Guide, the Carmelites have sought nothing more than to walk in truth, following in allegiance to Christ who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
Elijah got up, ate and drank, and the food gave him enough strength to walk forty days to Sinai, the holy mountain. (1 Kings 19:8)
