Let today be the day you give up who you’ve been for who you can become.

Carmelite Spirituality

Let nothing trouble you, let nothing frighten you, all things pass away. The one who possesses God, lacks nothing. God alone suffices. (Teresa of Avila)

Discalced Carmelite Friars Anglophone-African Conference
4th – 10th February, 2024

How good and how pleasant it is, brothers and sisters dwelling in unity. Psalm 133 Our Two Definitors for Africa from the Generalate in Rome, along with Provincials from USA, Spain, India and Ireland, and delegates from DRC, Nigeria, Uganda, Kenya, Malawi, Zambia, Tanzania and South Africa gathered at the Retreat Centre of the Carmelite Fathers in Benoni for their meeting. They celebrated Mass in our Chapel on Tuesday 6th February. A time of great joy for us all.

Prayer for the Synod:
We stand before You, Holy Spirit, as we gather together in Your name.
With You alone to guide us, make Yourself at home in our hearts;
Teach us the way we must go and how we are to pursue it.
We are weak and sinful; do not let us promote disorder.
Do not let ignorance lead us down the wrong path nor partiality influence our actions.
Let us find in You our unity so that we may journey together to eternal life and not stray from the way of truth and what is right.
All this we ask of You, who are at work in every place and time, in the communion of the Father and the Son, forever and ever.
