Our Lady and Sheen

Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel

Today is the optional memorial of Our great Mother, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, the patroness of the Order of Carmelite.  It is the principal feast of the Carmelites and has been a feast on the universal calendar since the 1700’s.

One of my students had gone to Mount Carmel Academy previously, and the joy in her eyes that was visible when someone would mention Mt. Carmel, Our Lady, or St. Simon Stock was just incredible.  I had never met a Carmelite until I was at Lourdes, but I did see quite a few in Lisieux.

While we’re on that subject let us ask some of the more popular Saints of Mt. Carmel and Carmelite Saints to pray for us from their station around the throne of God.

Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, pray for us!

St. Elijah, holy Prophet, pray for us!

St. Elisha, holy Prophet, pray for us!

St. John of the Cross, pray for us!

St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus, pray for us!

St. Simon Stock, pray for us!

St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein), pray for us!

All you Holy Saints and Blesseds of Carmel, pray for us.
