The Rule of St. Albert is the primary legislative document of the Order of Carmel; the Monks of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel find within their Rule all the prescriptions necessary to attain Carmelite sanctity. As sons of their Holy Mother St. Teresa, the Carmelite monks read their Holy Rule as the “Rule of Our Lady and Empress;” like her, the Carmelites penetrate into the deep wellspring of Marian spirituality contained in this Rule. In all the details of the Holy Rule, the Monks of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel find the ideals cherished by the Heart of the Immaculate Virgin, the fullness of the Marian life, and the very path by which the Carmelite monks are to ascend to the heights of Carmelite perfection.
