Let us ask the Holy Spirit to pour out upon us a fervent longing to be saints for God's greater glory, and let us encourage one another in this effort. (GE 177)

Come to see…

Here, in the Holy Land I read and I live God’s Word differently. I am incapable to explain it. It is unspeakable. Why? I dare say: “come to see, come to touch and you will understand …”

To stay in front of God for all

“To stay in front of God for all” is my ideal of a Carmelite in Holy Land where I have lived for a long time. It is to look at the prophet Elijah and to be inspired by his jealous zeal for the Living God.

It is to praise God in silence

To be Carmelite in the Holy Land is to live here in the roots of the Christian faith. It is to praise God in silence, in a dialogue of love and intercession for the world.

A sign of unity

To be Carmelite in the Holy Land is to be a sign of unity. It is necessary to place on witness unity with all the fibers of our being with the impartiality of feelings, emotions and judgment. I have been always very happy to live here as Christian and as Carmelite in an international community.

In the promise land…

For me to be a Carmelite in the Holy Land means to have been called to live my life of prayer in the promised Land, in the Land of the Revelation, in the land of Jesus. It is an appeal to be part of the people of the Covenant to share their destiny in order to welcome the full Revelation.
