The LORD God lives in whose presence I stand.
- 1 Kings 17:1

There are two traditions in Carmel: the original tradition of the Ancient Observance, and the Discalced Reform begun by Saint Teresa of Avila. Among both traditions there are friars, cloistered contemplative nuns, hermits, religious sisters, and Third Order lay members.

Carmelites of Mary Ever Virgin are cloistered contemplatives who follow the original tradition of the Ancient Observance of Carmel in the 21st century. In accord with their origins in the middle ages, they solemnly chant the Divine Office, beginning with Matins at midnight. Their medieval heritage also includes time each day for Lectio divina, study and personal prayer.
