Fr. Valabek continues his reflections from volume I, looking at the Marian experience in Carmel throughout the ages. In these pages, he illustrates how various Carmelites have accented certain aspects of Marian spirituality, and the impact these had on our understanding the Mother of Jesus. The Scapular devotion and relationship between Mary and contemplative prayer are some of the themes covered in this book.
This is the final volume of Fr. Redemptus Valabek’s meditation in Mary. It describes the Carmelite witness to Mary, the mother of Jesus, from the 18th century to the present, allowing the brothers and sisters of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, both lay and religious, it describe how they were able to express their faith and devotion even under the most trying difficulties. These Carmelites, like ourselves, were faced with changing circumstances and lived in a world always hungry for God but so often concerned with the worship of man rather than that of the Son of Man.
The true devotion to Mary is always present in Carmelite spirituality. It is expressed in many different ways and we need to keep in minde that true devotion to the Theotokos, the Mother of God, is – like the Gospel itself – not an optional accessory in our lives but an essential part of every Christian’s relationship with God.
The pages of this book illustrate the response of Carmelite to the voice of God for their times; that same voice which called to Mary from the very first moment of her existence.
