“We must get used to delighting in the fact that it isn't necessary to shout in order to speak to Him."
– St Teresa of Avila –
Advent with a Carmelite Spirit
Journey through the sacred season of Advent and into the wonder of Christmas in the company of St Elizabeth of the Trinity, Sister Wendy Beckett, and Australian Scripture scholars.
Each Sunday of Advent (or maybe a little before!) we will upload here a simple reflection sheet containing relevant and life-giving passages to reflect upon and some questions to ponder over. You may like to print the sheet out, or download it to a device, and have it near you during your prayer times throughout the week.
Mount Carmel Retreat Centre
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.
