Spotlight on Founders

Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm

Charism 

 "The two-fold end of the congregation is to combine the practice of the apostolic with the contemplative life. The sisters strive to be zealous for the Lord, whose glory they promote in seclusion of spirit and ministry to the aged and infirmed."

A Word From our Holy Father

“The spread of the Gospel is not guaranteed either by the number of persons, or by the prestige of the institution, or by the quantity of available resources. What counts is to be permeated by the love of Christ, to let oneself be led by the Holy Spirit and to graft one’s own life onto the tree of life, which is the Lord’s Cross.”
