Today at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church we celebrate the Solemnity of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, our patroness.
- Remember, like the prophet Elijah on Mt. Carmel, to spend some time in silence to listen for the voice of God.
- Remember, like St. John the Baptist, to gain strength from your prayer so that you can go out into the world and announce the coming of Christ.
- Remember, like the great Carmelite saints, to never stop striving to grow in your relationship with God.
We pray today for the guidance, protection, and example of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel as we find the quiet and prayerful Mt. Carmel in our own lives. May God bless you on this special day.
