SG and sisters in KazackistanA different way to read Fr. Gay’s advent letter

Viewing the video of the Carmelite Sisters telling the story of their experience inKazakistan you will read the Superior General’s Advent letter at a new level. You will see why he wrote in his letter “After visiting in the monastery with the Carmelites, I reflected on the need for prayer in my own life. Our charism invites us to pray as contemplatives in action, to step out of the busy world of work and other distractions, and focus on the presence of Jesus in Word and Eucharist. In my dialogue with these Sisters, I was so impressed with their simple, joyful witness in sharing their faith. As active contemplatives, we must also come aside to rest and reflect with the Lord.”
