The many kinds of Carmelite

Social media can be educational as well as distracting ... I learned yesterday on the 'Friends of the OCDS' site on Facebook about an Order called The Carmelite Missionary Sisters of St Teresa - who owe their foundation to Blessed Francisco Palau y Quer (1811-1872), a Spanish Discalced Carmelite who lived at a time of great disruption for the Order and indeed for Catholics in general in Spain. They seem to be strong in the Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking world and in Korea. This project of combining Teresian spirituality with an active life for Sisters is really fascinating - since of course Teresa's own focus was very much on small enclosed communities. Yet another example of the immense fruitfulness of Teresa's inspiration.
