For a Constant Return…
At the Second Vatican Council, the Magisterium of the Church pointed to a lodestar for the authentic renewal of religious life: a constant return to the sources of the whole of the Christian life and to the primitive inspiration of the institutes. Four centuries earlier, St. Teresa of Jesus was inspired by God to make this very kind of return to the sources of Carmel, thus bringing to birth a renewed form of Carmelite life. With clarity and simplicity, this book delves into St. Teresa’s charismatic inspiration. For the members of the Teresian Carmel today, this work can be an impetus for making that constant return.
