CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis encouraged Discalced Carmelites to “discover new language, new ways and means to give greater impetus to the contemplative life that the Lord has called you to embrace.”

He remarked that they face a particular challenge “because your lives embody the tension between separation from the world and immersion in it.”
