I'm Sr. Helena of Mary. I'm a Carmelite Sister for the Aged and Infirm. I live in Germantown, NY. with my Community. My blog is called "Salt of the Earth" because that is what Jesus asked his disciples to be. I hope I meet many friends here and witness to the beauty of our Catholic Faith and the love of God!
We must become aware that God dwells within us and do everything with Him; then we are never common-place, even when performing the most ordinary tasks; for we do not live in these things, we go beyond them! A supernatural soul never deals with secondary causes, but with God alone.
Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity, Carmelite
Carmelites dedicate the month of July to Our Lady of Mount Carmel, Queen and Beauty of Carmel.
“The soul that is attached to anything however much good there may be in it, will not arrive at the liberty of divine union. For whether it be a strong wire rope or a slender and delicate thread that holds the bird, it matters not, if it really holds it fast; for, until the cord be broken the bird cannot fly.
St. John of the Cross, Carmelite
