Reaching the Top of the Mount of Perfection

“I tell you, my brothers, it is from Carmel that the brethren must climb to the Mountain–all those who deserve to be called “Carmelites,” in other words, who, on account of the excellence of their lives, will go from strength to strength in a steady ascent from the Mount of the Circumcision of Vices until they reach, as they surely will, the Mountain which is Christ. ~”Saint Angelus of Sicily~
