The house of spirituality of the Discalced Carmelites of the Province of Lombardy in Cassano Valcuvia (Varese, Italy), hosted a beautiful event June 9th and 10th. It can be characterized as historic, being the first time that members from different OCDS communities met in one place to celebrate ceremonies of admittance or promises, temporary and definitive, in the Secular Order. The communities that met in Cassano hailed from Bologna, Concesa, Lodi, Monza, and Parma.
It was a festival for the entire province, and a moment of formation was not lacking; Father Giorgio Rossi, ocd, was in charge of it, and he helped the brothers and sisters in attendance to reflect on the meaning and value of the secular life in Carmel and in the Church. He called us to keep our eyes fixed on Christ, following the advice of Teresa of Jesus, in order that He may obtain for us the gift of having his own sentiments.
