“Let Nothing Disturb You”: A Virtual Choir of Carmelites

This impressive both technologically and musically. With a few exceptions among apostolic communities — and of course, the Third Order laity — when you think Carmelite, you think enclosure; you think grilles; you think of interior castles and humble cells.

The prayer — which is more of a sort of contemplative pulse — is this:

Let nothing disturb you,
Let nothing frighten you,
All things are passing away:
God never changes.
Patience obtains all things
Whoever has God lacks nothing;
God alone suffices.

We certainly need to remember that.
