(Carmelite nuns of Mirna Pec, Slovenia)
My future Carmel in Sheffield, UK (http://www.kirkedge.org.uk/) founded a 1990 Carmel in Slovenia. The paragraph below is taken from their website on this foundation. The picture above and the ones below are of this Carmel in Mirna Pec, Slovenia. They have a different look to their veils.
“In 1996 Doctor Sustar, Archbishop of Ljubljana in Slovenia, asked us to take the responsibility of a new Carmelite foundation following the Constitutions of 1990. The Monastery of Mary Queen of Angels, Mirna Pec, was canonically erected in 1998 by His Eminence Cardinal Franc Rode, Prefect of the Congregation of Religious, who was the Archbishop of Ljubljana at that time.”

I did a Google translation of this Slovenia language into English and pasted it in below – there are problems with this translator feature, as usual, so it’s not a perfect read:
“Eternal vows with. Theresa Benedict
On the Feast of the donation at the temple – svečnico Saturday, 2 February 2013 held a grand celebration in Carmel in Mirna sizzle as it is put to its solemn perpetual vows with. Teresa Benedict St. Mary (b. Jerica MULEJ). S. Theresa Benedikto are taking this step pomemebnem escorted home and native parishioners of the parish Ribno in Bled. The ceremony was led by Bishop Andrej Glavan, when it is somaševalo 11 priests. S. Teresa Benedict has taken his religious name after St.. Edith Stein, as she herself before entering Carmel studied philosophy and have overcome personal questions and doubts about faith. Bishop Glavan in his speech also emphasized the need for nuns and monks in a special way try to render in their lives the life of Jesus Christ. Religious communities, especially the contemplative orders, but to their common life modeled on the Holy Trinity and with each other to cultivate the love between God and government entities.
Sisters Teresa Benedict of the heart we congratulate her and asked her for connectivity in prayer!
Excerpt from the homily of Bishop GLAVAN:
“Perpetual vows the crown longer maturation, differentiation, and learning about God’s will and charisma communities and the introduction of community life in osrečujočo beauty of living where the acceptance of personal failure and trials represent those logs that are fueled by light and radiate joy of living. Essence Carmelite charism is: prayer, penance, the victim and the community effort, so to speak, the Trinitarian life of communion.
Nuns, especially in contemplative communities are trying to be in the profession portrayed by Jesus Christ, who was obedient to the Father, clean and miserable. Literally to imitate Jesus’ way of life in all its dimensions, so that the Church became alive the memory of Jesus himself. The experience of Jesus ‘whole life and sole of the Father, and to the mission that He has entrusted to the nuns would assume that they are transformed into living memory, and in fact a sign of Jesus’ way of living and being.
The essence of the whole Church, so much more of each consecrated communion is that it should reflect the mystery of the triune God. Janez Pope Paul II. in the Apostolic Exhortation NMI (At the beginning of the new millennium) gave the program when he wrote that every family, parish, and in particular religious community to become school community. He noted also that this is a challenge for the Church in the third millennium. Religious communities are called to live reflect depth, richness and beauty of the trinitarian mystery.
The pope said in a circular consecrated life, it has also consecrated life is credited to the Church kept alive the need for brotherhood and sestrinstvu, heralding the Holy Trinity (VC 41). Continuously striving to live in brotherly and sisterly love in different forms of life to their members to prove it. The members of the consecrated life are therefore not called to live only in the memory of Jesus, but also and especially in the Triune God. People who live this rich Trinitarian life, radiate peace, joy, love. It is a mission that is needed man 21 century. Only a victim who, after a miraculous alchemy of turning into a love of the cross, and it will be a convincing testimony to the modern man.
This life has also decided to Jerica MULEJ – now with. Teresa Benedict St. Mary. The change of name is a sign of complete surrender decisions and hearts to a new life. “
