Conference on Father Francisco Palau

Conference on Father Francisco Palau

The congregations of the Carmelite Missionaries and the Teresian Carmelite Missionaries, together with the Pontifical Faculty and the Pontifical Institute of Spirituality Teresianum in Rome, organized a conference on Father Francisco Palau, ocd. It took place from November 26th to 28th, 2018, on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of his beatification by Saint John Paul II, which occurred in 2018.

Historical and biographical topics about Blessed Francisco Palau were presented, as well as his manner of living out the Teresian Carmelite charism in his situation of exclaustration and diverse other topics having to do with his spirituality and mystico-theological legacy to the charismatic heritage of the Church and Carmel.

The Congress concluded with a prayer of thanksgiving which also implored the prompt canonization of our brother Father Francisco of Jesus, Mary and Joseph (Palau y Quer), Discalced Carmelite.
