  • A Prayer book drawing on the Carmelite spiritual tradition is being published in the year in which the Carmelite Order celebrates the eight hundredth centenary of the rule which goes back to St. Albert of Jerusalem after 1207. The new volume consists of prayers, reflections, poetry and biography from the Carmelite spiritual heritage. It draws on two main figures including the two St Teresas, and on more recent Carmelites like the Martyr Bl. Titus Brandsma and Maltese youth Leader and priest, St. George Preca canonised in early summer 2007.

    The new book contains the Carmelite Rule with a commentary. It has a night prayer in the Carmelite tradition as well as traditional prayers and others drawn from the Carmelite Liturgy. It is abundantly illustrated mostly from Irish Carmelite art. An ideal gift-book to be valued by those who are new to the Carmelite heritage, or who already treasure this school of holiness.


    The Irish Province of the Order of Carmelites has been present in Ireland since the second half of the thirteenth century and continues to live out its triple charism of contemplative fraternity in the midst of the people.

    The Spirit of Elijah.
    The Carmelites are a religious order committed to the care and needs of the Church in all five continents of the world. They are the successors of the hermits who lived in the spirit of Elijah on Mount Carmel in Israel. The words spoken by the prophet form the motto of the Order - I am filled with zeal for the Lord God of Hosts.

    Many people will have heard of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and the Brown Scapular but may not necessarily be sure about the Order of Carmelites for whom the scapular is an integral part of their habit. This website will help people to learn more about what we call Carmel and its work, spirituality, saints and so many other areas of Carmelite life.

    From what began as a small group of about twenty or thirty hermits living on Mount Carmel in Israel at the beginning of the thirteenth century, the Order is now present on all five continents through its various branches and affiliated groups.
