Our Lady's Birthday

2021OLBWeb400Today is traditionally the day on which we celebrate Our Lady's Birthday. No one knows, of course, when Mary of Nazareth was born, but like all families we celebrate important events in the lives of those close to us. The birth of her son, Jesus, was the hope and dawning of salvation for the whole world.

Mary has long been considered the model of the Christian person: one who puts their faith and trust in God and who allows the Word of God to take root in their hearts and who gives that Word human shape and form in loving words and actions.

Carmelite Rule

A rule of life was given to the early Carmelites by St Albert Avogadro, Patriach of Jerusalem between the years 1206 - 1214. It was finally approved by Pope Innocent in 1247 and later underwent mitigations which were not in the original text.

The Carmelite Rule states that is basic for a Carmelite to "live a life of allegiance to Jesus Christ - how, pure in heart and stout in conscience, he must be unswerving in the service of his Master" [no.2].

The Carmelites of Australia and Timor-Leste are committed to the protection of children, young people and vulnerable adults from all forms of abuse and mistreatment.
