The Eucharist is the source of our Carmelite life.


We receive Our Blessed Lord each day during Holy Mass. This gives us the strength to serve
Him in union with whole Church and each other.



                             

Let an oratory be erected
as conveniently as possible
in the midst of the cells,
where you are to assemble
every morning to hear Mass,
when this can be
conveniently done.
Rule 8
