Letter to the Editor: Collecting Stories

Dear Editor,

Father Leo McCarthy, O.Carm.,

Everyone is saying that Leo McCarthy’s use of stories about the members of the Province went very well at the Chapter. I have been collecting stories for a bit now and have a few pages. I think Leo is also collecting now. Could we get something into the Carmelite Review asking the members of the Province for stories they would like to share?

Of course, we would hope they would be as close to the truth as possible, but that is not an absolute criterion. They can send them to me or to Leo.

If sent to me my e-mail is and I will add them to the collection.

It would be fun if we got stories especially from the older men in the Province. Stories can be about Carmelites alive or who have passed on. We’ll accept either personal experiences of the correspondent or stories he has just heard along the way. Also, we don’t want pages and pages of a story, just little vignettes. Thanks!

Yours, in Carmel,

Father Simon Kenny, O.Carm.
