Yearly retreat in the “Mater Carmeli” Spirituality Center of Butare

The Discalced Carmelites’ spirituality center “Mater Carmeli” in Butare, Rwanda, hosted a retreat directed by Father Christian Muta, ocd, a member of the Saint Joseph General Delegation of the Congo.

In it, 35 consecrated Africans participated: Teresian Carmelite postulants and novices, Carmelite friars having professed simple vows, and Teresian Carmelite Missionary juniors. They were joined by solemnly professed religious of other congregations.

Father Muta, expounding the content of St. John Paul II’s post-synodal apostolic exhortation Vita Consecrata, encouraged participants to face the challenges of consecrated life, which is called to transform the world.
