Emile James Posted January 5, 2007 Share Posted January 5, 2007 (edited) while we are at it, did you know that 'next door' (to the Bethlehem hermits in NJ) if you will, more like beside, i guess, are the 6 Carmelite Women hermits,helped by many priests and the Bishop, with practically the same physical setup as the Bethlehem Community next door here.. [url="http://www.hermitsofourladyofmountcarmel.org/index.htm"]http://www.hermitsofourladyofmountcarmel.org/index.htm[/url] the second group of pics are good shots, especially the one to the right of snow covered cross.. [url="http://www.hermitsofourladyofmountcarmel.org/gallery.htm"]http://www.hermitsofourladyofmountcarmel.org/gallery.htm[/url] THE HERMITS OF OUR LADY OF MOUNT CARMEL 80 Pleasant Hill Road Chester, New Jersey 07930-2135 USA "The Patriot's Path, part of Morris County's trail system, runs along the east shore of the river, ... The path is suitable for biking and hiking. If you're headed south on the path, distracted by the flowers and birds and the general racket of the woods in spring-time, you may miss the hermits on your left as you near Pleasant Hill Road. That's fine with the hermits. Two communities of Catholic hermits, the Bethlehem Hermits and the Carmelite Sisters, live in a grove of eastern hemlocks on the eastern bank of the river. A separate, private road leads to their hermitages. Their lives are intentionally silent and sacrificial, and while they're kind to visitors, their home is not a theme park, and they prefer visitors who are spiritually motivated.
