“Behold, Your Mother”

Happy Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel!

Today (July 16) we celebrate the feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, who presented us with the Brown Scapular through an apparition to St. Simon Stock. She said to him,

“Receive, My beloved son, this habit of thy order: this shall be to thee and to all Carmelites a privilege, that whosoever dies clothed in this shall never suffer eternal fire …. It shall be a sign of salvation, a protection in danger, and a pledge of peace.”

So always wear your Brown Scapular and cling to its promises!

And here is a video meditation below by Fr. Wade Menezez of the Fathers of Mercy. He is an amazing homilist, and discusses the Blessed Mother and this devotion.

(These are the daily readings. The homily begins at 6:50)

Have a blessed week, Pioneers!

In Christ through Mary,
