Nourish your soul, connect with others, and enjoy some great spiritual reading by joining the Carmelite Spirit Lent Book Club! We will be reading together the short, exquisite book “John of the Cross: Seasons of Prayer," by the Carmelite friar Fr Iain Matthew.
Each week of Lent, we will contemplate a chapter of the book and its relevance to our lives. You will have the opportunity to share your own reflections and to read the reflections of others. The book club is free and will run on Facebook groups.
Don’t have the book? Don’t worry! “John of the Cross: Seasons of Prayer" is available instantly as an eBook via Amazon. Click here, or on the image of the book, to be taken to Amazon, where you can explore the book a little further and go ahead and purchase it!
A helpful step on the journey of contemplative prayer is to make a silent retreat in the presence of a praying community.
Mount Carmel Retreat Centre, Varroville, outside Sydney is one place that welcomes people for retreats.
