Father Robert Barcelos, OCD: Fulfillment of Life, Episode 4

Published by Shalom World TV

The Peace of Christ, the Wounds of Christ

Editor’s note:  Readers have recently asked about the availability of text-versions of talks on You Tube. Most of the Carmelite Fathers speak extemporaneously, often with very few notes, if any at all.

My secular community has been blessed to have had Father Robert as our Spiritual Assistant, and even more  Discalced Carmelite Fathers from the California-Arizona Province just up the hill. Because our secular community recognized the value of these teachings for anyone, regardless of location, we have begun to collect any written work made available by a Father, or to transcribe recorded talk for this online forum.  It takes at least 1 hour to transcribe 5 minutes of a talk.

If any readers are interested in transcribing a You Tube talk, and sending what you have along to this site for written publication, please let me know under the comment section.

Also, I have added a NEWS tab for updated information, mostly relevant to the California-Arizona Province of Discalced Carmelites. – TL

‘Arm yourselves with the armor of faith and the sword of truth.  Pray for the grace to forgive and to ask for forgiveness – and for the healing of wounded bodies and souls.’

  1. Hi Teresa,
    I am delighted to see these posts by Fr. Robert. Thank you for posting them! Would he be able to share the written versions of these talks as well? I know he has provided writings already that have been very good.

    In view of the fact that we have lost some of our wonderful teachers among the friars, notably Fr. Michael Buckley and Fr John Michael Payne (may they both rest in peace), it seems that it would be nice to have some format more permanent than YouTube. The YouTube publication is great, and certainly effective in communicating the spirituality of Carmel, but I hope it does not replace the written word. I expect that the DVD versions of these are probably available from the sponsor (Shalom World TV). It would be nice to know how they could be obtained.

    Thanks!

I will look into obtaining DVDs from Shalom.

      1. Hi Teresa,
        I could not find your email so am writing it here. If you can get DVDs from Shalom, I will fund the transcription of the 7 Fr Robert Fulfillment of Life series. We could start on them the week of January 24th.
