The Carmelite background of St. John of the Cross is examined in this work by historian Balbino Velasco, O. Carm. He proposes that his formation as John of St. Matthias, a little studied aspect of the saint’s life, was as much a contributing factor to his eventual participation in the Teresian reform. Translated by Joseph Chalmers, O. Carm. from the original Spanish with a helpful glossary of terms. – Translated by Joseph Chalmers, O.Carm.
Composed on the occasion of the eighth centenary of the Carmelite Rule, historian Patrick McMahon, O.Carm. offers an interesting and in-depth study of its background. He then offers a commentary on the accompanying text in order to answer the question of its suitability for all Carmelites, particularly the laity. He concludes with some interesting reflections on the significance of this inheritance for Christians, and particularly Carmelites, today. (Fourth printing: 2013)
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)
Le tre più grandi religioni monoteistiche del mondo — Giudaismo, Cristianesimo e Islam — venerano tutte il Profeta dI fuoco.
Per gli ebrei è il precursore del Messia, un messaggero tra cielo e terra, colui che ricostituisce il popolo eletto. Nei Vangeli elia appare insieme a Mosè nella trasfigurazione, testimone della divinità di Gesù. Per i Musulmani noi siamo vivi perché elia è vivo. Per tutti è un esempio di fedeltà a dio.
In Profeta dI fuoco P. Kilian Healy, già Priore Generale dei Carmelitani, ripropone l’eterna sfida di elia: Se il Signore è Dio, servitelo; ma se il Dio è Baal, servite lui!
L’uomo di oggi preferisce restare indeciso. Come nell’antico Israele oggi non si vuole impegnare troppo a fondo: si proclamano i principi di pace e di giustizia ma si promuove un consumismo sfrenato; si proclama l’ugua glianza tra tutti, ma si rivendicano privilegi personali e nazionali; si proclama il primato dello spirito ma si rifiuta la disciplina. Elia sollecita ancora i servitori dell’altissimo a rovesciare
i propri idoli e a tornare ad adorare l’unico dio. I Baal del consumismo e dell’egoismo possono essere meno appariscenti degli antichi idoli, ma sono più insidiosi per il
Popolo di dio. Profeta dI fuoco ci invita a risollevarci e ad impegnarci.
