When most people think of the Carmelite order, they think primarily of St. Teresa of Avila, St. Thérèse of Lisieux, or St. John of the Cross. Some may think of St. Edith Stein or St. Elizabeth of the Trinity. But this rich tradition has been blessed with many lesser-known saints whose lives echo that same Carmelite charism and embody its holiness.

Our Other Carmelites Bundle features several Carmelite saints that you may not have had the pleasure of meeting yet:  

  • A childhood hero of Pope St. John Paul II. Saint Raphael Kalinowski is the biography and anthology of the Polish engineer and freedom fighter, exiled to Siberia, who became the restorer of Carmel in Poland and the first Carmelite friar canonized since John of the Cross.
  • Chile’s first canonized saint. God Is All Joy tells the story of Teresa of Jesus of the Andes, Chile's first canonized saint. A vibrant 20th-century young woman who loved sports and music, Juana Solar had a wide circle of friends. She entered Carmel and died only eleven months later at 19. Despite her short life, her passionate love for God and joy has made her a popular saint and model among Latin American young people especially.
  • 16 martyrs of the French Revolution. To Quell the Terror recounts the dramatic true story of the Discalced Carmelite nuns of Compiègne. At the height of the French Revolution's "Reign of Terror," a community of sixteen Carmelite nuns from Compiègne offered their lives to restore peace to the church and to France. Ten days after their deaths by the guillotine, Robespierre fell, and with his execution on the same scaffold, the Reign of Terror effectively ended. Had God thus accepted and used the Carmelites' generous self-gift? Meticulously researched, with previously unknown details about the individual nuns, this book is a page-turner!
  • The soldier become lay brother, the monastery cook and sandal maker. The Practice of the Presence of God is a classic of western spirituality and has found an audience among Catholics and Protestants alike. Allow this timeless masterpiece of Carmelite spirituality to introduce you to Brother Lawrence of the Resurrection and his simple yet profound teaching on how we can live in God’s presence.
  • “The Little Flower of Florence.” In God Is Love we meet St. Teresa Margaret Redi. Like her French counterpart a century later, she entered the convent as a teenager (17) and died young (22). But her short life, like that of St. Thérèse, was filled with small acts of kindness for her sisters and all those with whom she came in contact, and with a burning love for the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The cornerstone of St. Teresa Margaret’s spirituality was to remain hidden, to appear just like everyone else in spite of her heroic virtue. She did remain hidden, but fortunately for us, we can now discover her and the powerful message of her life.
