16/7: Feast of Our Lady of Mt Carmel…


On this Feast of Our Lady of Mt Carmel, share your favourite prayers, novenas, hymns, experiences etc.  And perhaps reflect on the dedication of the nuns, brothers and priests of the Carmelite Order who pray and make sacrifices for the Church and the world.  The short film below about one community of Carmelite nuns is a reminder that we are perhaps not grateful enough for the sacrifices made by our Religious.

  1. Happy Feast of Our Lady of Mt Carmel to one and all!

    I have a friend with whom I grew up who is a Carmelite – we’re still in touch – so I’m thinking of her today, and of all Carmelites who spend their lives in prayer and self-sacrifice for the Church and the world.

  2. Happy Feast everyone. I found this short reflection on the Carmelite life which I thought would be welcome here. It’s a beautiful vocation, right in the heart of the Church.
