On this day, Nov. 8, the feast day of St. Elizabeth of the Trinity, join me in praying her famous prayer known as “O My God, Trinity whom I Adore.” It is a prayer that is very deep with much to ponder. This translation came from the book, “Drink of the Stream: Prayers of the Carmelites” compiled by Penny Hickey, OCDS, pg. 299-300.
What are the obligations of a person who becomes a member of the Secular Order of Discalced Carmelites? An easy way to remember them is to abbreviate them and call them the “6 M’s.” Colleen Sollinger, a professed member of the Secular Order of Discalced Carmelites, and also the Director of Formation for her community in Dayton, OH, shares with us a description of each of the M’s, but also challenges us with deeper perspectives that may revitalize us in many ways. She references many of our Discalced Carmelite Saints, the OCDS Constitution, and uses many other resources. This is one of the very best talks I’ve heard on this topic. Be refreshed! Be renewed in spirit! God will be glorified in all!
