The CARMELITAN PORTAL is the ambitious project of a handful of friends of the Carmelite spirituality who, convinced that "there is no member of the Church who does not owe anything to Carmel", has started the journey to build an internet site in which Free and open, you can access all the information of the Order of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel, in its three main branches: friars, nuns and laity present throughout the world, in addition to all congregations added to the Order . A great wealth, a deep source of spiritual belonging to all and therefore, available to all those men and women, seekers of God in the ordinary things of everyday life.
Our Portal wants to be, first of all, a PLACE OF ENCOUNTER, where all the Friends of Carmel can participate: taking advantage of all the available resources in the different categories, sending free material to enrich the site, requesting prayer for a specific need, following the news most important through social networks and in many other ways.
The Portal wants to be, also, a PLACE OF INFORMATION, because it will be our purpose to always and constantly search, through the official sites of the Congregations that make up the great Family of Carmel, all the news and information that allow us to recognize the path of follow-up of Jesus who in the present and now of our history, proposes us the Carmelite spirituality.
It is also, PLACE OF FORMATION, because each article, conference, course or simple personal testimony, will carry all the necessary elements so that we can continue to grow in our following of Jesus, as Saint Teresa asked, "from good to better". Many other projects are "soaking" waiting for the right moment to see the light and that will undoubtedly be interesting surprises for those who follow us.
Finally, we hope with all our hearts that this Portal, built with the effort and help of many, could be "CASITA DE DIOS", that is, a place of encounter with the One we so eagerly seek and love.
Welcome, then, to the Carmelite Portal and enjoy the navigation!
