The Carmelite Family

The Discalced Carmelite Family is a religious Order in the Roman Catholic Church. Its members trace their roots back to the ancient hermits on Mount Carmel, Israel, in the 13th century.

Discalced Carmelites aim to follow Jesus Christ, with a special emphasis on Scripture and prayer: a deep friendship with Jesus is the foundation and inspiration of their lives.

Their vocation is truly Marian: they take Mary as their model, and like her, are called daily to ponder Jesus in their hearts. This way of life was re-interpreted in the 16th century by Saint Teresa of Avila, with the help of Saint John of the Cross. That is why Discalced Carmelites are sometimes today referred to as “Teresian Carmelites”.

This family includes not only friars and nuns, but also lay people from all walks of life. Discalced Carmelites are found in many countries in the world.
