It was “Good Morning, Carmel” on Tuesday, 27 November, as Archbishop Leo Cushley of St Andrews & Edinburgh paid an early morning visit to the Carmelite sisters in Dysart, Fife, in order to offer Holy Mass followed by breakfast with the community.

The monastery in Dysart was established in 1931. It is part of the Discalced branch of the Carmelites which sprang from the 16th century reform of the order by St Teresa of Avila. As with all Carmelite communities the spiritual focus in Dysart is contemplation, understood as encompassing prayer, community, and service.
