More good tech

Last night we had the latest edition of our 'Virtual Carmel'. Set up mainly for Seculars who have become isolated from groups for whatever reason, this is a small group that meets monthly via zoom. We operate as a kind of reduced version of a Secular meeting, with discussion of a Carmelite text, silent prayer, and Evening Prayer, the whole lasting from 6pm to 7.30pm. We are currently looking at Teresa of Avila's Way of Perfection, and I for one am noticing new things and learning new things in our discussions. For those who attend, it's just another blessing to have come out of the very difficult experience of the Pandemic.
