The early Carmelites were hermits who were joined by pilgrims who had journeyed to the Holy Land. As followers of Christ, their deepest desires led them to Mount Carmel.
This image of pilgrim portrays the inner journey to the centre of our being where the Holy Trinity dwells. In the stillness we listen to his invitation and come to realise that we do not need to go in search for him, since he is within us.

“You soul, most beautiful of creatures who long to know the dwelling place of your beloved . . . Know that you yourself are his tabernacle, his secret inner room and hiding place.”

St. John of the Cross
