These archives can be accessed for free at http:archives.catholicmessenger.net/
In order to preserve the authenticity of the achieved material as it is presented, we have not made spelling or additional corrections to most of the material. The old newspapers that are the source material are probably in various states of deterioration due to age. Nevertheless, the snippets provide an exciting and valuable collection of the way our charism was viewed over time. It is also a tribute to all that have gone before us that have worked to make Carmelite Life possible for us today.
