Six years ago, something happened! A small group of Discalced Carmelite nuns arrived in Malta from Morristown New Jersey to start a new foundation. Respecting their vocation, they came in silence. They did not make any noise. No trumpets were played.
And they started living their life in silence and prayer.
On September 12th 2019, these holy souls made a step forward. One of them, Sister Mariyam Shahar of the Savior made her simple profession. In front of her prioress and her community she promised that she will live a life of obedience, chastity and poverty in the spirit of Carmel. Her family have travelled all the way from Guam to witness this joyful celebration.
As she wrote in the handwritten invitation that she prepared, this is a nuptial celebration between the MOST HANDSOME of all men and myself.
She is a very lucky girl… And the Church in Malta is very lucky that someone is giving up her life for the salvation of souls in Malta and worldwide.
This is the first ever profession of a Carmelite in this new foundation at Tal Virtu’, Rabat Malta.
The Discalced Carmelites have another foundation in Santa Margerita, Cospicua. They are in Malta since 1726!
