We have established a chapel dedicated to two heroic martyrs: Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross and Blessed Titus Brandsma. The chapel consists of an intimate prayer space with seating around the periphery for meditation, private or group prayer, conversation and sharing. The centerpiece is an icon of Christ displaying the scripture, "Love your enemies; pray for those who persecute you." (Matthew 5:44)
The purpose of the chapel is to promote Carmelite spirituality while fostering devotion to these two models of compassion, peacemaking and forgiveness. We are living in a time when the world is deeply in need of these virtues. Their intercession is needed to heal divisions and strife on a global and national level, but also on an interpersonal level among neighbors, within families, and within the Church itself.
