In these videos, Carmelite friars and friends of the Order offer short reflections on different aspects of Carmelite spirituality, or give a Carmelite perspective on various aspects of life, as part of the Province's outreach during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The second video is on "Saint Teresa of Avila - Her Message for Us Today" and is presented by Sheila Grimwood, a member of the pastoral team at Aylesford Carmelite Priory in Kent, and an Executive Board member of The Carmelite Institute of Britain & Ireland. Sheila is conducting postgraduate study on Saint Teresa, and is the author of the biography A Portrait of Teresa of Avila from Her Letters.
