Discalced Carmelites of the Infant Jesus


Discalced Carmelite Nuns live a life wholly dedicated to contemplation. Like Elijah on Mount Carmel, they seek the face of God through their life of prayer. They live a strict papal enclosure, a full liturgical life including daily Mass and the Liturgy of the Hours, and a life of penance in the spirit of St. Teresa of Avila.
