According to the Motu Proprio: Summorum Pontificum of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI, and the corresponding Instruction Universae Ecclesiae, the Monks of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel have unanimously chosen to permanently retain the Carmelite Rite as the Liturgy of their institute according to the Carmelite liturgical books in use in 1962.


This Rite is essential to their identity as Carmelite monks, structuring and determining the whole of their monastic horarium, and without this Liturgy the whole edifice of this beautiful charism would collapse. The Carmelite monks hold in great esteem this marvelous gift of their Carmelite Liturgy in the extraordinary form.
