Overview

Eight hundred years ago Albert of Jerusalem gave the hermit-penitents of Mount Carmel a way of life to follow. Since then, this rule has inspired and formed mystics and scholars, men and women, lay and ordained to seek the living God. In The Carmelite Tradition Steven Payne, OCD, brings together representative voices to demonstrate the richness and depth of Carmelite spirituality. As he writes, "Carmelite spirituality seeks nothing more nor less than to 'stand before the face of the living God' and prophesy with Elijah, to 'hear the word of God and keep it' with Mary, to grow in friendship with God through unceasing prayer with Teresa, to 'become by participation what Christ is by nature' as John of the Cross puts it, and thereby to be made, like Therèse of Lisieux, into instruments of God's transforming merciful love in the church and society." The lives and writings in The Carmelite Tradition invite readers to stand with these holy men and women and seek God in the hermitage of the heart.

    Full disclosure: One of the selections found in this volume is my translation.
    As a Discalced Carmelite friar, I taught the history and spirituality of the Carmelite Order for two decades. This is an excellent selection of texts, with fine introductions and notes. Many of the people whose writings are excerpted in this volume are men and women about whom Carmelites often hear but have seldom had a chance to read. I wish this book had been available when I was teaching. The members of the English-speaking Carmelite family should be grateful to have it. They will gain a better knowledge of the richness of the heritage and the present-day significance of their tradition.
