The Prophet Elijah

Feast Day: July 20th

The Spiritual Father of the Carmelites, we take for our motto his exclamation “With zeal have I been zealous for the Lord God of Hosts” (1 Kings 19:14). He is our model of the double spirit of action and contemplation, the latter as seen by his encounter with God on Mount Horeb in the still small voice, the tiny whispering breeze (1 Kings 19:12).
