The Carmelite Jan Pascha’s handwritten manuscript The Spiritual Pilgrimage of Hierusalem (c. 1530) was rescued from oblivion by its original publication in Flemish (1563) by Peter Calentijn of Louvain, chaplain of its large Benguinage, and with the support of Katherine Brussaert, the Abbess of the monastery of Binderen in Helmont. Soon afterwards, also at Louvain, Jan Pascha’s spiritual masterpiece was translated and prayerfully adapted into its French editions (1566/1576) by the renowned scripture scholar Nicolas de Leuze à Fraxinis, who had edited the (Vulgate) French Louvain Bible (1552) with his assistant Francois de Larben. In turn, John Heigham, from his exile in Douai as an English recusant, translated and published Pascha’s Spiritual Pilgrimage for his English Counter-Reformation audience (1604-1605). With the present transliteration, annotation, and introduction by Dr. Edward J. Clemmer, Jan Pascha’s profound 16th-Century contemplation as interpreted by John Heigham is made accessible and intelligible to all for contemporary spiritual reflection and analysis.
American-born (1948) Dr. Edward J. Clemmer is a married dual-citizen living in Malta since 1992. He completed his Ph.D. in Psychology (1975) under a Jesuit mentor at Saint Louis University.

In retirement, Dr. Clemmer published his spiritual journey, Gospel (on the Road to) Emmaus, Vol. 1 & 2 (2011). Then, in 2012, he discovered the Carmelite Priory Mdina, Malta. Presently, Dr. Clemmer is taking a M.A. in Spirituality at the University of Malta, where he is writing his dissertation (2017) on Julian of Norwich.

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)
In 2005, biblical scholar Fr. Klemens Stock, SJ, offered some reflections on the call of Peter, the disciples, and Mary to the members of the Carmelite family in Spain and Portugal. Using various scriptural texts, Fr. Stock reflects on the invitation and response of these great figures to participation in the mission of Jesus Christ. Translatedby Joseph Chalmers, O.Carm.
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.
