Product Description

“Sister Marie describes in detail the life of a Carmelite Nun and shows us by what means and in what manner rich spiritual treasure is being gathered for the benefit of all of us.” 
— Thomas L. Noa, Bishop of Marquette, in the original foreword

This gem of a book is required reading for anybody interested in learning about the hidden aspects of life in Carmel, "the powerhouse of prayer." Sr. Marie, a young novice, sent this illuminating series of letters to her parents and relatives about her time at the Carmelite monastery. Her letters are a treasure resource of timeless information on the lives of these spiritual warriors, from the minute they wake up in the morning to their praise of God at the end of each rich, joyful day fighting for His glory and souls.

In her letters, Sr. Marie responds to all of her family's queries in a loving, conversational tone and explains every element of her new life as a Carmelite nun. Her insightful observations and down-to-earth, sometimes funny anecdotes will allow you to experience the Carmelites' life-giving vocation and learn how you might emulate their dedication in your own everyday life. During this "retreat," you will learn about:

•  Adventures in the lives of the Sisters 
•  Fascinating customs that will enrich your Faith 
•  Awe-inspiring celebrations for Christmas, Easter, and every season 
• The history behind devotion to the Child Jesus, the Scapular, and the Carmelite Order 
•  Sacred traditions, prayers, and maxims to live by  
•  Types of sacrifices Carmelites offer for souls in the world

A diocesan priest referred to the Sisters as "priests' silent partners in saving souls— silent partners in the eyes of the world but atomic blasts at the foot of God's throne." Through their hidden sacrifices and devotion, the Sisters of Carmel contribute to the world's salvation. Above all, you will be inspired to pray more purposefully and labour for souls in the quiet, everyday duties of your own life.
