Letter of the Prior General on the Solemnity of Our Lady of Mount Carmel 2018

Fernando Millán Romeral, O.Carm., Prior General

The Prior General sends us his greetings as we remember Mary under the beloved title of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. His letter speaks to us about the upcoming XV Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops in Rome, 2019 World Youth Day in Panama, and celebrations honoring Our Lady of Mount Carmel in the Philippines and in Spain. We commemorate Our Mother and Sister, the Domina loci (mistress of the place) that is at the center of our lives and that inspires and encourages us to live our Carmelite charism at the service of the Gospel, of the people of God and of all humanity.
