A Carmelite celebration
Bishop Michael C. Barber, SJ, celebrated Mass Oct. 15 at the Carmel of Jesus, Mary and Joseph in Kensington on the Feast of the Solemnity of St. Teresa of Avila. The Carmelite order, the bishop said, this year has been observing the 500th anniversary of the birth of the Spanish saint who reformed the Carmelite order. "Just look at the miracle God has accomplished. Five hundred years later, the Carmelite order not only just exists, but is thriving and growing," the bishop said in his homily. "Our Carmelite nuns here in Kensington have the same Carmelite monastery, the same rule, the same habit St. Teresa had. Her spirit, her rule — the gift she gave to the church — is alive and continues to this day. We here in the Diocese of Oakland are happy beneficiaries."
