February 21, 2011 – Introduction
// February 21st, 2011 // Carmelite Conversations
This program begins with a simple history of the Order and its foundation in our Father, Elijah. The primary text for this program is “Journey to Carith” and the ICS publication on entitled “Elijah.” This program provides a basic understanding of what led to the establishment of the Carmelite Order, and also profiles some of the key figures who will be presented in greater detail in later programs. The focus is to demonstrate how Elijah’s own life serves as a model for the today’s active contemplative who seeks above all else to do the will of God.
