Saint Elijah

Feast Day: July 20

If you want to know all about Saint Elijah, read the Book of Kings. When you read Chapter 17-22, you will be hooked! His story is fascinating. We call him "our spiritual father" because our life as Carmelites is inspired by his life. What are the qualities we admire in him? How do Carmelites see him? He was a prophet, lover of solitude and silence, listener to the Word of God, a man of action and prayer, man of courage and full of zeal for the Lord.
