God’s Garden

February 27, 2013

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.

The images and insights presented here represent a small sampling of what has bloomed in “God’s Garden” over the course of our 800-year existence. Welcome to our Carmelite garden; we hope you are nourished by what grows here and invite you to comment and share it with others.

    I am going on a three-day silent hermitage retreat tomorrow morning and this picture really heightened my anticipation to enter into winter solitude to commune deeply with God. Thanks for the beautiful picture and the quote from Anne of St. Bartholomew.
