The geographic Mount Carmel that we take our Carmelite name from is a mountain range along the Mediterranean in Israel. It is a green oasis surrounded by desert; hence, its name “Carmel,” which means “the Garden of God” in Hebrew. The metaphorical Carmel is a way of life, our disposition as we make our spiritual path up Mount Carmel.

Modern spiritual writers see prayer as necessary for one's own self-discovery. Thomas Keating is just one example. In all prayer we try to establish contact with God. However, we need God’s grace first even to do this

WhenWePray.Fullness

I wish to make it clear that prayer is not an escape from one’s responsibilities in life. Contemplation (prayer) always has a praxis dimension. Jesus’ life demonstrates this when He says that He came to serve and not to be served (Mark 10:42-45). Prayer should move one more into the fullness of life.

In honor of Elijah, I narrated four stories from the Book of Kings over lazy guitar music. Hopefully, they capture a bit of the glory of Elijah, one of the most interesting figures of the Old Testament, and a Carmelite.
