We write to inform you that on 17th August a meeting of young Carmelites will be held in Madrid as a part of World Youth Day.
A lot of young people will participate, about 500, but the realization of this beautiful dream is not just for young people who are going to be present in Madrid but for all of us in the Carmelite Family.
We are working on "a place of prayer" as our primitive Mount Carmel, a place where young Carmelites, who cannot be here in person, can meet. We are preparing a place where we will meet with thousands of young Carmelites around the world (we will exchange materials through the internet, so that everyone can participate), a place to share our experiences and where Our Lady awaits, a place to share like a big family.
This is the reason we decided to contact you, we need you to pray for this exciting day and send the letter that we attach to all the young Carmelites you know (brothers, sisters, volunteers or young people who participate in our spirituality ...)
17th August is a very important day in the calendar of all young Carmelites, it is our day, we have a special event.
The best gift we can give our young Carmelites is to live a Christian Carmelite, therefore we ask you to help us to motivate them, all together we can make this day, that changes the hearts of a lot of young people, special.
