ONLINE RETREAT with the Discalced Carmelites. Beginning: 24th November 2021

Prepare yourselves for the feast of Christmas with the Discalced Carmelites.

Since 2011, the Discalced Carmelites have been offering online retreats to help prepare for the two great liturgical solemnities of the year: Christmas and Easter. Today, more than 81,000 people follow these retreats in 11 languages: French, English, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, German, Polish, Romanian, Dutch, Czech and Indonesian.

After an introduction to the retreat, sent on Wednesday, November 24, you will receive an email every Friday. You will be able to download the content for the coming week in Word or PDF format (computer or mobile version).

The two people who inspire this retreat are St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus (1873-1897) and Maria Montessori (1870-1952). Both are doctors. The first guides the Church to spiritual childhood and the second guides children to the Church. Women, prophetesses, they were nourished from the same source: the Gospels. Through their voices, God lifts the mysterious veil of his Face resembling a child.

Every week you will receive:

■ a meditation based on the Gospel and texts from Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus and Maria Montessori;

■ a short video to welcome the Gospel better;

■ Pratical advice on putting it into practice;

■ an Advent calendar for daily prayer.

Have a good retreat!
