The fraternal life finds its noblest expression in the Sacred Liturgy, where the Carmelite monks are united in the worship of God. Through the common liturgical observance of the Carmelite Rite, the unity of the community as one family in Carmel is clearly manifested. In the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass the fathers and brothers find themselves profoundly united through the reception of Holy Communion, where they are made one in Christ.
