As Carmelites we are contemplatives and the most important part of our life is prayer. We spend two hours, each day, in meditation (or mental prayer), for meditation leads to contemplation. (Meditation is our work, where we go to meet God; contemplation is God's response.) Most of this time is spent in the chapel. However, we are free to go to our cell (what we call our personal bedroom) or some spot on the grounds. Over the next few days I will share a few of those spots.
