Inspired by the instruction of the Second Vatican Council to return to the spirit of the founders, the Monks of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel has arisen for the renewal of the Carmelite monastic life and to carefully preserve through monastic enclosure a “life hidden with Christ in God.” In 2003, the grace of the Holy Spirit drew together the first fathers of this institute into a community of solitary men united by the same ideal: to cultivate diligently the seeds of virtue and contemplation in a divine family of fathers and brothers united in love. From the beginning of this religious institute, in the solitude of northern Wyoming, the Lord has seen fit to call young men to embrace this monastic life of austerity and contemplation that they might illumine the whole world by the holiness of their lives.
