A contemplative order of cloistered Carmelite nuns living a life of prayer

All my longing was and still is that since God has so many enemies and so few friends that these few friends be good ones. As a result I resolved to do the little that was in my power; that is, to follow the evangelical counsels as perfectly as I could and strive that these few persons who live here do the same. I did this trusting in the goodness of God, Who never fails to help anyone who is determined to give up everything for Him.

In the measure you desire Him, you will find Him.
