Sheffield Lay Carmel held their recent Day of Recollection at Kirkedge. The event was led by Fr Sixtus ,who spoke on “Carmel in a Changing and Challenging World – Contemplation remains at the heart of Carmel.”
After the celebration of Mass, the theme was continued in the Holy Hour, which was led by Deacon Tony Strike of Sheffield University.
Quotes from the recently published Apostolic Constitution “Vultum Dei Quaerere” (Seeking the Face of God) provided a focus for meditation.
Prayer and silence are necessary in seeking God and the belief that ultimately God alone suffices.
The Carmel Day of Recollection ended with Benediction in Latin.
