Video of life inside an enclosed Carmelite community, including short excerpts of interviews with some of the Sisters. The Discalced Carmelites of Wolverhampton, UK, would like to thank Miranda Tasker and Marcus Nield, who made this film, for their hard work and professional skill. With only basic equipment, they did the filming and put together the presentation with sensitivity and understanding.
5 S’s: stillness, silence, simplicity, singing, sisterhood. Nicely done!

Surprised to see the sisters receiving Holy Communion in the hand!
Yes, David, that surprised me too!
Everything else about these wonderful nuns – whose lives of prayer and total selflessness are “the power-houses that sustain the Church” (Pope St John Paul II) – was so uplifting. How much we need their prayers and sacrifices right now to help clear up the “mess” the world is in, as they so rightly say.
Haven’t yet watched this video. I look forward to doing so. It reminds me of this other new film:
by Margaret Betts, which I put on my Amazon Wish List a couple of weeks ago, but which I have also not yet seen (but since I did add it, I hope you will think it may be worthwhile considering although I cannot recall exactly why I thought it might be) and which reminds me of this documentary, slightly older:
that follows the Discalced Carmelites of The Most Holy Trinity in Notting Hill, London, which I have seen and which I did mention here previously.
