« Let dawn bring news of your faithful love, for I place my trust in you;
show me the road I must travel for you to relieve my heart. »
(Ps 143, 8)
« The life of a Carmelite is a communion with God from morning to evening and from evening to morning. If He did not fill our cells and our cloisters, how empty it would be! But through everything we see Him, because we carry Him within us and our life is an anticipated heaven. » (Saint Elizabeth of the Trinity)
