God’s Garden
February 8, 2013

February 8, 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.

    Have you thought of turning these images into a day calendar a la Sierra Club? I bet they would sell like hotcakes! I certainly would buy one. And how about making them available as posters or lithographs. I have just the place for one in my kitchen that would quote St Teresa of Avila’s statement: “God walks among the pots and pans”
