The Association of Carmelites in the Holy Land is a fraternal bond of mutual help, it has existed since the end of the 90s. Today we have become a new reality which is now called, “Federation our Lady of Mount Carmel of the Carmelite Nuns in the Middle East and North Africa “. For it has been enriched by the carmels of Egypt (Al Fayum), Morocco (Tangier) and Syria (Aleppo). We met in Cyprus from the 16th to the 21st of September. It was a rich moment of meeting, exchange and working on our Statutes, revised according to the last documents of the Church.
“By listening, we know ourselves more and more. Those who are wise are the ones who never stop discovering », said Fr. Miguel Marquez (Carmelite father, provincial of the Iberian Province) to introduce and accompany our exchanges.
Father Antoine-Marie Leduc (Discalced Carmelite, Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life) helped us to deepen our mission in the Church of the Middle East and North Africa by accompanying our work on of our statutes. “One can never oppose the law and the Holy Spirit, the charism and the institution”.
