Hermits of the Blessed Virgin Mary 

of Mount Carmel  


As the Lord of hosts lives, whom I serve..."      1 Kings 18:15


500th Anniversary
of the
Birth of St. Teresa of Jesus

March 28th, 2015

Carmelites around the world celebrate with great solemnity God's gift of the life of St. Teresa--who can be counted as a great church reformer, mystic, foundress, and a practical example for holiness in the contemplative life.  Though she lived a mediocre spiritual life for over 17 years in her convent, she found a deepened conversion and renewed fervor later in life.  As she struggled to give her heart completely to God, she caught the world on fire with a renewed love for Christ.  Among the many profound spiritual teachings of St. Teresa,  she teaches us that it is never too late to be a saint.  The Carmelite Hermits will participate in a Holy Hour on March 27th in honor of this commemoration of 500 years since the birth of St. Teresa. 


The Holy Season of Lent:

by which we purify our hearts of evil desires, 
meditate on the Passion and Death 
of Our Lord Jesus Christ, 
and look forward with hope and joy 
towards the Resurrection at Easter.
