Course Title: Essentials of Carmelite Spiritual

Among the four female Doctors of the Church, two of them are Carmelite. What is the relationship between the Carmelite tradition of prayer and a Catholic theology of womanhood? This course will consider the A-Z essentials of the Carmelite charism by studying the spiritual classic of Saint Teresa of Avila, The Way of Perfection. Saint Teresa leads us to understand the gradual perfection of charity through a determined determination of heart. Altogether, the specific Carmelite form will be put into sharp relief in order to calibrate the contemplative character of woman according to the Marian rhythms of divine grace.
