So many times lately I hear the cliche “I’m not religious, I’m spiritual”, and it always makes me sad. I was born just a few years after this documentary, “Inside a Carmelite Convent”, was made. I spent the twelve years of my schooling at a Carmelite Convent. Mt. Carmel Academy in New Iberia was often just called The Convent. The nuns who taught us lived upstairs in simple, little rooms. When I first arrived, Sr. Rose Marie was the principal. She and all the sisters there were the first people I knew beyond my family group. A bit later I witnessed the take over of that beautiful place by a coven of what I now call fake CIA nuns. These fakers shut the place down, and New Iberia became a pedophile and Satanist haven. Mt. Carmel was the place that made New Iberia special.
In my life I’ve seen so much deterioration of what I once enjoyed and loved, a world that had been created for me by all the religious people around me. No one was ashamed of being religious, no one denied it or even talked about it. Love was all around me, for awhile.
Religion is depicted in this documentary, but it’s not so long ago that life was this orderly and sane. The youngest nun shown could still be alive, but this convent too was closed. The comments say that it’s in Presteigne, Wales. No wonder we use the word pristine to mean pure.
I haven’t found the recently deleted video of the mother suffering and dying in front of her son after recieving a Coven-19 vaccine, but I found this instead. It’s worth watching and thinking about all the ways we’ve gone astray from the simple, humble life that makes people happy and sane. It’s not so long ago that life made sense.
It was on Mt. Carmel, Lebanon that Elijah destroyed the baby sacrificing priests of Baal who worked for Jezebel. Jezebel was the one who killed people to obtain their property. The Carmelites are those who are joyful with no property of their own, but they are dedicated to a life of prayer for the rest of us, and their lives were secure within the Catholic Church framework. They understood perfectly well that their prayers enabled God’s love to channel through them and into the community.
Listen to the part where the nuns are interviewed, and they explain the utility of their prayers for us. This and other documentaries about the Carmelites are very enlightening. If I could have a wish granted, I’d wish for a revival of traditional Carmelite convents and schools to help heal our broken society.
