"The Centre for Applied Carmelite Spirituality (CACS) is happy to announce a new spirituality series — LIGHT for THE WORLD — featuring six exceptional Carmelites – Francisco Palau, Hermann Cohen, Père Jacques de Jésus, Titus Brandsma, Marie-Eugène and Raphael Kalinowski – who lived at a time of much political and social strife yet witnessed to the spirit of true Carmelite humanism. This series will explore their courage and Gospel fidelity. Their witness offers hope and is a beacon of light for us as we navigate our own equally challenging times. The lives of these faithful disciples of Christ will inspire you, give you insights that will transform your life and encourage you in your spiritual journey."
