Discalced Carmelite Nun Communities


Recommended Posts

Yes, the sermons are great.  I am wondering if the priest is Fr. McLucas.  He was filling in as their chaplain in Elysburg for a few months, so he may still be there.  I'll have to email him and see if he's still there.  He's a wonderful priest.  He was our chaplain in NY for 3 years until the archdiocese closed the church.  We had a growing congregation of about 150 families and then :alone:

 

Their chaplain there now is Father John Szada, but there may be another priest there to give the sermons. I wonder how many priests are there today for the feast day? I wouldn't be surprised if there were more than a few. Tonight they are having a Pontifical High Mass with Bishop Waltersheid. Maybe after today they will post more of the details as sometimes they post pictures. Are you able to go to a church with the Traditional Latin Mass? I haven't been to one in a long time, but what a blessing.

 

Happy feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel to all. :) May She protect us and bring us closer to Jesus.

We sing the same antiphon at the veiling. In the Spanish and Italian monasteries the nun is prostrate during the singing and the younger nuns cover them with rose petals! [media]http://youtu.be/Kv0

Thanks for sharing that Gracian! I love the Croatian people! :heart: I know you've seen this already, but speaking of, here's the story of the famous Croatian actress who entered San Jose in Avila ~ http://www.phatmass.com/phorum/topic/109813-croatian-actress-professes-solemn-vows-in-avila/  In one of those articles it says another young woman from Split followed her :like:

 

Happy Feast of St. Teresa of the Andes!

 

I forgot about her feast day! :) Her book of letters are beautiful. It seems to be an expensive book online, however I purchased mine here and it was the cheapest I found for $22:

Is he an FSSP priest I wonder?  Yes,  I am very blessed to live close to an FSSP parish.

Praised be Jesus Christ! The official OCD site has just been redone ~ http://www.discalcedcarmel.com/  This may have happened on the Solemnity of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. I don't think I visited it that day, but not long before it and it was still the old design.

 

By the way, yesterday was the Feast of the Carmelite Martyrs of Compiègne ~ http://carmelourladysdovecote.wordpress.com/2013/07/17/bl-teresa-of-st-augustine-and-companions-ocd-virgins-and-martyrs/

I don't think he is a Fraternity priest. Here is an article, and a couple of pictures of him, about a house blessing he did back in January: http://newsitem.com/mount-carmel-priest-keeps-tradition-of-blessing-homes-for-epiphany-alive-1.1432303 He has only been the chaplain at Carmel since June 17th this year. Also, that is wonderful to be able to attend a Fraternity parish. That Order has very good and holy priests. Hopefully they will receive a lot more. :)

There was a Traditional Latin Mass on the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus at the Brooklyn Carmel this year! :heart:

I checked the redone website but the when I checked the addresses of the Nuns, they are all jumbled.  For example, if you search the USA Carmels, addresses of Indian and Spanish Carmels are included!

I noticed that! And it's so much harder to read.. like to pick out the names of the places where the Carmels are at, that's all jumbled too. I hope that gets fixed. It's going to be so much harder for me now to help you put together an updated list of all the 1990 Carmels throughout the world as you requested. Still doable though.

posting this here too... http://www.phatmass.com/phorum/topic/116361-the-wedding-dress-orders-for-us-romantics/?p=2611238

 

 

I meant to post way back... here is Sr. Marie-Angélique of Jesus (1893-1919) who was at the Carmel in Pontoise, France. She is similar to Blessed Elizabeth in that she was an excellent pianist & spent 5 years in Carmel, dying at the age of 26. I am not sure if there is a process going for her canonization, but I am guessing there must be. She is often named with the other great French Discalced Carmelite Nuns, like in this painting of a vision Madame Acarie (Blessed Marie of the Incarnation) had of St. Teresa.

I copied this from this book Flame of Joy on her (out of print) on her clothing... I was going to post this especially a few weeks ago in relation to the discussion about when the custom of the wedding dress may have begun and how it seems to have been around the French Revolution, especially when they had big ceremonies, where the postulants would leave and re-enter in their dresses. This is how it was for St. Therese.

 

 

"Marie Angélique received the habit July 29, 1914, in a closed and almost empty chapel ... Contrary to the ceremonial of the time, the postulant remained in the cloister, for the hostility of her parents gave rise to fear of a violent intervention on their part ...The private character of the ceremony allowing departure from the stylish mode of the times, the nuns lovingly adapted the crisp white veil to the virginal type of their little Sister and in her angelic-tunic with the large sleeves, Marie Angélique looked as though she had stepped down from the frescoes of Fra Angelico.
 
Her state of soul from the time preceding her retreat was characterized by "such a desire for the possession of God" that she confided she was almost never distracted. This vehememnt desire literally tore her away, causing her real suffering, and sometimes became "so violent that she could hardly prevent its being noticed externally."
 
Then in response to this desire, Our Lord granted her a strong and sensible grace of union. But the "Thabor of her Clothing" lasted only a day."

Thank you, Chiqui!

 

I love the photos of Sr. Marie-Angélique of Jesus.

 

Is there an oline copy of the book you mentioned?

Praised be Jesus Christ! Hello Gracian! You're very welcome! The book is out of print and I just happened to have found it on amazon used, http://www.amazon.com/Flame-Joy-Souvenirs-Autobiography-Marie-Angelique/dp/B000H9EA4Q/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1375037210&sr=8-1&keywords=%22flame+of+joy%22+angelique It was translated and published by the Eugene, OR Carmel. I have the original French copy of it as well, Flamme de Joie which I plan to give to a French speaking friend. You could write them to see if they have any more copies and also to encourage them to republish it!! http://aquerofoundation.com/id13.html  It is so incredibly beautiful!! :heart:

 

As a quick note, I tried my best with taking pictures of the photos above with my digital camera, as the book is one of those that is not possible to open all the way (without ruining it) but very tight binding. I was going to crop the second two as as I did the first, but it kept leaving out important parts of the photo when I did, like the top of the candle or the cloister stairway, so I just left it.

 

I did scan this one this morning though of St. Teresa of the Andes, which I posted here, http://www.phatmass.com/phorum/topic/129636-religious-of-the-sacred-heart-of-florence/?p=2611248

 

Also, I posted this in another thread a few days ago, but in case you missed it, http://www.lasvegasmariancenter.com/MONSIGNOR.Carmelites.use.pdf

 

God bless!!
