THE CARMELITE EMBLEM-ITS MEANING
The Coat of Arms of any organization is expressive of facts in its history. The seal of Carmel has this too, which is full of great significance and meaning, In the center of the shield rises the Holy Mountain of Carmel, the cradle of the order which is symbolic of the Spirit of Prayer, Contemplation, Sacrifice and Austerity. The arm with the flaming sword was adopted in the memory of the Prophet Elijah, our inspirer and model of the order, a man who walked continually in God’s presence and defended the worship of the One True God. The stars above the crown represents the attributes of Our Blessed Mother, the Virgin Mary, whom St. John saw in the Apocalypse under the figure of a woman clothed with the Sun and crowned with 12 Stars.
