Today, in Carmel, we celebrate the feast of St Elijah the Prophet - the model for our way of life: contemplative, dedicated to the Word of God and the mystery of His divine life, and zeal in his service. Oh that we may be as prophetic as this great father of Carmel! If we are called to be may we also arise with zeal.
