Full Product Description

  • Want to deepen your faith over Lent?
  • Discover the Carmelite tradition of prayer over the Lent period
  • You'll discover how to bring prayer into every part of life

Faith is, and always has been, a journey towards something greater than surface existence. Something deeper. Something more spiritual. This commitment to leading a life of depth - through prayer, presence, and a loving friendship with God - is what is part of what paves the Carmelite way.

The new Lent book based on the teaching, practices, and creeds of Carmelite spirituality offers you a path towards a new depth of faith. By daily fixing your eyes on God through fervent prayer and spending a little of the day reflecting on the spirit of Lent, The Way of the Carmelites give you the next steps on a journey of true belief. A journey like no other,

Lent, after all, is a manner of journey. Over 40 days of refocusing, repentance and fasting you can find transformation of thought and spirit, With a sight towards God, these reflections give you the space to find strength in God, as well as a series of questions to get you thinking about the truths of Lent.

A call to take up your cross, The Way of the Carmelites is an antidote to the convoluted modern world. A road to deep prayer and closeness with God.

Publisher's Description

Carmelite spirituality is based on a deep relationship with God in prayer, focusing on the presence of God within us, and leading to a life permeated by closeness with God and concern for our neighbour. This beautifully written book, rich in reflection on the Bible, is a spiritual companion and guide for Lent, and indeed the rest of the year, that will introduce readers to the riches of Carmel.

Prayer, in the Carmelite tradition, is friendship with God. It is being alone with God in a silent communion of love open to the Spirit. With our eyes fixed on the vulnerability of Jesus and on his unrequited love for us, we are transformed, and strengthened to give ourselves as he did. Our contemplation is the source of our practical action. The discussion questions at the end of each chapter facilitate this practical approach.

'To take up the treasures of Carmelite spirituality, and embark with Jesus on the Lenten experience of forty days in the desert, is a journey that can be enormously enriching and even life-changing.' From the Prologue.
