The Discalced Carmelites of the Australia-Oceania region are sharing the riches of their spiritual tradition with the launch of their new Carmelite Spirit website.
The website, www.carmelite.com, and its associated social media channels, are primarily intended to share the Carmelite tradition with the “everyday” Catholic looking for spiritual refreshment as well as other spiritual seekers.
To this end, the website features regularly updated elements such as talks on Carmelite themes, reflections on the spiritual life from a Carmelite perspective, and words of wisdom from contemporary and classic Carmelite figures.
Carmelite Spirit is also a resource for people discerning a Carmelite vocation. The website offers, for example, a glimpse into every enclosed community of Carmelite nuns in the region.
Fr Bernard Hancock, provincial Discalced Carmelites in the Australia-Oceania region, said the website was an exciting project for the order.
“It is an important avenue through which we can share the treasures of our spirituality with everyone,” Fr Hancock said.
Future endeavours for Carmelite Spirit include an online Advent retreat and the expansion of the Carmelite Spirit social media presence.
