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.

This photo series journeys within and beyond the Carmelite tradition, revealing the Prayerful and Prophetic life in some unexpected places.

I guess somebody might say I’ve been in a formal “discernment atmosphere” for about a year and half. I’ve been through a pre-Novitiate, and I’m a good chunk of the way through a Novitiate. I’ve gotten a lot of advice about discernment from many people, and it has been enormously helpful.

For much of my adult life, the sense of a call to the priesthood has resurfaced numerous times. In spite of my own goals and desires for my life, I continue to be brought back in this direction.
