Fr. Redemptus Valabek, O. Carm. returns with thirteen new biographies of holy Carmelites, most of whom lived, worked and prayed in the last two centuries. Carmelites of all ages are included in this volue. Profiles include theologian Fr. Bartolomé M. Xiberta, O. Carm., foundress Bl. Maria Teresa Scrilli, O. Carm., and youth candidate Santos Franco Sánchez. (Second printing: 2004)
Historian Joachim Smet, O. Carm. offers a glimpse into Carmelite women’s monastic life that spans centuries and continents. Beginning with the affiliation of various individuals and groups, his book takes the reader on a journey through the formation of the first formal monasteries to the successes and struggles of subsequent groups, to the founding of other monasteries beyond European boundaries. Photographs and references complete his account of these cloistered members of the Carmelite family. (Second printing: 2011)
Fr. Joel Giallanza, CSC, offers some wonderful insights in this “mini-course on the Interior Castle.” He offers a brief description of each of the seven mansion, followed by some reflections on how each level impacts prayer and relationships. Each section ends with a meditation on a particular virtue related to that stage of the interior life. (Third printing: 2008)
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.
