Following Jesus as a Secular Teresian Carmelite - Our Apostolate

As Teresian Secular Carmelites, we are called upon to live the demands of following Christ in union with Him, by accepting His teachings and devoting ourselves to Him.

Following Him requires that we partake in His saving mission of proclaiming the Good News and the establishment of God's Kingdom here on Earth. Making Him the law of our lives and predisposed to fulfill three fundamental demands:

  1. To place family ties beneath the interest of the Kingdom and Jesus Himself;
  2. To live in detachment from wealth;
  3. To carry the cross of accepting God's will revealed in the mission that He has confided to each person.

By the promise to strive for evangelical perfection in the spirit of the evangelical counsels of chastity, poverty and obedience and through the beatitudes that strengthens our baptismal commitment in the service of God's plan in the world, we express ourselves as followers of Jesus.

This promise is a pledge to pursue personal holiness that carries with it our commitment to serve the Church in faithfulness to our Teresian Carmelite Charism.
