Product Description

In telling the story of the Carmelite tradition, Wilfrid McGreal shows the enduring importance of the Rule with its call to follow Christ with an undivided heart and its challenge to be steeped in Scripture. The significance of the symbolic figures of Elijah and Mary is highlighted -expressing and resolving the tensions of the contemplative life and pointing towards the mystical. Wilfrid McGreal also stresses the contribution of women to the Order's life, from before the time of Teresa of Avila, also taking in Therese of Lisieux and Edith Stein. It is the story of a living community and an enduring vision which remains just as vivid today as yesterday.
