Overview

Carmelite history and prayer begin with Elijah on Mount Carmel, followed by a long line of saints who have heard the voice of the Lord calling them to come drink from the stream. This book is an invitation for you to pray with the saints of the Carmelite order, from Elijah through the 20th century.

It is made up the prayers and meditations of more than twenty-five saints along with a short biography of each saint, and numerous illustrations. In addition to helping one with prayer and meditation, it also provides prayer for specific topics. Whether one is a beginner or highly advanced in prayer, there is a prayer suitable for nearly every occasion. These magnificent prayers echo from prison cells, hospital beds, battlefields, and even treetops.

It gives special emphasis to the prayers and meditations of the three great Carmelite mystics: Teresa of Avila, John of the Cross, and Therese of Lisieux. But the other twenty-two saints include a wonderful variety, with Elizabeth of the Trinity, Simon Stock, Titus Brandsma, Edith Stein, and many more.
