Carmel is the 'home' where I am able to live out my vocation, or "to be love in the heart of Mother Church" St. Therese of Lisieux. That is, the place where I am able to live a life of prayer in the required atmosphere of silence and solitude in the company of like-minded people. For me personally, St. Therese of the Child Jesus has always been a great inspiration, a never failing loving friend, as well as a wonderful example of heroic sanctity and love of God and neighbour.

Life in Carmel to me means living the ordinary daily 'common life' in a deep spirit of faith, hope and love. Nothing spectacular perhaps, but rich in the peace and joy only God can give. Then there is the pervading presence of Mary, loving Mother and ponderer of the Divine Word. "All I have in Carmel is Gift from God to be shared with others."
