What is a Carmelite

Our Order is a religious family which is rooted in the Holy Scriptures, with the prophet Elijah, and in the tradition which saw the birth of the Rule for the first hermits of Mount Carmel.  Its charism attained maturity in Teresa of Jesus and John of the Cross, both doctors of the Church.  Its members are formed in a living way, being helped to enter into this tradition by prayer, study and a Teresian way of life.
