The Discalced or Reformed Carmelite, a branch of the Order of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, was founded by St. Teresa of Avila, in 1562. Before her death, she established 16 Monasteries of Nuns. The first monastery of the Second Order of Carmel was established in the U.S. in 1790. Carmelite nuns spend their life in supplication; praying for the needs of the Church, salvation of souls, and conversion of sinners. These nuns are from Texas, USA.
