It's the arrival day for all 162 Carmelite Nuns participating in this historic meeting. All afternoon there have been wonderful first-time meetings and happy reunions. Here are some of the photos of the family of Discalced Carmelite Nuns in the USA:

A room in the hotel has been transformed into a lovely chapel space and liturgy booklets have been prepared for the special occasion. We will celebrate Eucharist at 5pm tonight and will be keeping all of our sisters at home very much present in our prayers.
