Liturgy

Liturgy at the priory

“As in the primitive Church, as religious we are called to celebrate together the Eucharist and the Liturgy of the Hours. Liturgical prayer is the highest form of communal encounter with God, and brings about what it celebrates. Personal prayer is intimately linked with liturgical prayer; one flows from the other…The sacred liturgy unites us with the apostolic witness and with the faith of the entire Church. Communal liturgical celebrations are moreover a central characteristic of our Rule.”
(Constitutions 69, 71)

 “Inspired by the Word and in communion with the whole Church, the brothers come together to praise the Lord, and invite others to share in their experience of prayer. Every day, if possible, the brothers are called, from solitude and from their apostolic work, to the Eucharist – source and culmination of their lives – so that, gathered together around the Lord’s table, they may be “united, heart and soul,” living true, fraternal koinonia in unselfishness,  in mutual service, in faithfulness to a common goal and in a spirit of reconciliation inspired by Christ’s love.”
(Carmelite Constitutions 20)
