      Carmel is a desert and mountain journey,

              In the footsteps of Our Lord Jesus Christ,

              In company with Blessed Mary Ever Virgin,

              In the prophetic zeal of our Father Elijah,

              In order to stand

              Before the Face of the Living God.

      "Behold the handmaid of the Lord, let it be to me according to Thy Word." 

      Luke 1:38
