10.  Carmelite Nuns of the Eastern Rite – Bulgaria: A Hidden Life

This trailer presents the first 10 minutes of the CRTN – documentary “A Hidden Life.” With the coming to power of the Communists in Bulgaria, religious communities became increasingly oppressed. Continuously controlled, continuously observed the sisters were subject to ever more intimidating interrogations and ruder searches. Some of them, such as the Carmelites, awaited prison sentences. In 1948 the authorities started to confiscate Church run schools, convents and orphanages, forcing the sisters to move to a hidden life in tucked away corners such as choir lofts or abandoned buildings. This is the story of how two religious communities, the Carmelites and the Eucharistine sisters, survived this time.

An audio recording (with accompanying photographs) of a talk given by Johan Bergström-Allen, T.O.C., at the end of the first day of the 2012 ‘Carmelite Way Pilgrimage’ organised by The Carmelite Centre in Melbourne, Australia. Over the course of 3 days (9-11 November 2012) some 30 pilgrims walked the Lilydale to Warburton Railway Trail, taking time en route for reflection and prayer. Johan was asked to speak at the end of the first day on the theme of “The Carmelite Journey”.


12.  Carmelite Vocation – Come and See

This explains the roots of Carmelite vocation. Carmelite Order is one of the ancient Orders of the Catholic Church. Contemplatives are called to experience the Living God like Prophet Elijah and witness to his divine presence. This experience of God is fundamental for any authentic human promotion.


St. Teresa of Avila reformed and gave new face to the Carmelite Cloistered life. Her daughters follow her charism and spirit. Their primary task is to reach the Mount of Christian Perfection and to be a witness to Christian holiness in a heroic manner.


Carmel is one unceasing act of love. Here God walks on pots and pans. God is seen everywhere and loved everywhere and in everyone, even the most difficult person. Love makes everything sweet and tender. The other face of Carmel is Love! come & See.


Our Monastery is like the home of Mary and Martha, often lovingly sought by Jesus on his sojourn on earth. We keep and our hearts and house a welcome home for Christ, where he can find his repose and rest.
