16/7: Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel

As always with a Feast day thread, bloggers are invited to share their thoughts about the Feast,  share favourite prayers and hymns, and any links which may help us to understand the meaning and importance of the Festival.  Of course, also feel free to discuss any relevant issues, and generally enjoy the day.  

The following is taken from the website of the Immaculate Heart of Mary parish in Balornock, Glasgow:

There will be a Solemn High Mass at Immaculate Heart of Mary, Balornock, at 12 pm on Saturday 16th July, celebrated by Fr James Mawdsley FSSP. Fr James Mawdsley was ordained on 2nd July in Bavaria, by His Grace Archbishop Guido Pozzo, Secretary of the Pontifical Ecclesia Dei Commission. He will be celebrating First Masses around the UK during the next couple of weeks, and we are honoured to have him celebrate at Immaculate Heart.

Happy Feast day to one and all – not least the newly ordained Father Mawdsley!
