Product Description

VADE-MECUM of the Carmelite Tertiaries of Carmel

Study on the Vocation and the Spirit of the Third Order of Carmel

by Brother Paul of the Cross, T.O.C.D.

63pp.  paperback

This little book is a reprint of the English translation done by the Carmelite Sisters of Boston in 1933.  The Belgian author in 1924 said, it aims but to realize what its title suggests and to place in the hands of Tertiaries of Carmel, together with a summary of their obligations, a certain number of instructions which it will be difficult for them to find for themselves elsewhere. 

It offers a faithful and beautiful description of the spirit of Carmelite life.  And the Boston Sisters added the small, exquisite work of Bossuet, "A Short and Simple Way to Practice the Prayer of Faith and of the Simple Presence of God" - a valuable set of instructions for those learning to live a life of prayer.

  1. A Wonderful Book about the Vocation and Charism of the Third Order

    Posted by Suzanna on 2nd Oct 2018

    This little book is the perfect size for carrying in one's pocket, purse, or even inside a missal/breviary cover. It explains in clear language the vocation of the Third Order and how to live it. I'm currently in formation to receive the scapular and I can't tell you how thankful I am for this little book. It is so wonderful to read something that hasn't been tainted by modernism. It's really motivated me to better live the life of a Tertiary.

  3. Vadem-Mecum is a real gem of a book!

    Posted by Gail on 16th Nov 2016

    To be honest dear Sisters, I purchased Vadem- Mecum because I had never heard of it previosly, and I really wasn't expecting too much. Well how wrong was that assumption! As I found it is precious gem of a book that I think all Carmelite tertiaries should read and reread! Thank you and God bless you.

  4. ***Attention All Tertiaries of Camel****

    Posted by John G. on 2nd Mar 2016

    How many times do we forget or become sloppy with our duties to our vocation and spirit to the Third Order of Carmel ??? This small and convenient book spells out what is required of us. This very small book can always be included with the Liturgy of the Hours, and Carmelite Devotions Prayerbook when we go to Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration. A few minutes review of this book and meditating on its contents will keep us up-to-date and refreshed on our duties being a Tertiary of Carmel.

    This manual has reminded me of how my spiritual life used to be and what I have to do to improve it, and how to go about it. Thank you sisters for having these kinds of books for lost souls like mine. God bless you.
