Brother, what do you seek?

Please pray for four young men who will be received into the novitiate and receive the Carmelite habit at Aylesford today.

Brothers, what do you seek?

Drawn by God's love, we have come here to live the Carmelite way of life.  I ask you to teach me to follow Jesus Christ:  obedient, chaste and poor.  Instruct me in the way of the Gospel so that observing your Rule and Constitutions I may live constantly in the presence of God.  Guided by the Holy Spirit to serve the Church, may we be one in mind and heart as Brothers of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel.
