This post is in honour of St Therese and of the Carmelite contemplative tradition, (though there is one Benedictine story from Bulgaria among the videos). The occasion is our unofficial invitation to give hospitality to the relics of St Therese of Lisieux for two days in October. Why the Carmelites have suggested it, I am not quite sure. Perhaps it is because our monastery is the only cloistered religious house for men in Peru. During the visit, our accent on St Therese will be as a saint of the contemplative and monastic life. Anyway the Carmelites are being very generous, and we are grateful to them. We have to apply but know in advance that they have already said "Yes"..
