An ancient saying in the Carmelite Order states: Carmelus totus Marianus est, that is, “Carmel is totally Marian.”
The Holy Virgin permeates our whole life by her living presence in the midst of our brotherhood.
“She is truly their life, their sweetness, and their hope; their source of kindliness, their sister, their friend, their dove, their immaculate one, the love of their hearts. Indeed, she is their heart and soul.”
She is our mother and our sister. What more do you want in life?!
Here is a simple pictorial collage of our Mother and Sister.
