We would like to share a link to an online Advent Retreat hosted by the Discalced Carmelite Friars in Paris, France. Each Advent and Lent they graciously offer this free material to the public. The Retreat is given from the Carmelite perspective and often highlights a Carmelite saint. Last year at Lent was St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein) and this year for Advent is our Blessed Mother, Carmel’s own Patroness and Queen.
We hope you can participate! We think you will find it to be a fruitful way to go deeper into this holy season … with our Blessed Mother. What better way?
