Our Lady

Our Lady of Mount Carmel novena is approaching. We are looking forward to the start of it on July 8th. I have put the first prayer here http://chelkay.blogspot.com/2014/07/our-lady-of-mount-carmel.html which also links to the novena at ewtn.com

We give thanks and praise to Our Lord and Mother. In words of a local Sister...

"She, ever so faithful to Her Beloved Son, stood at the foot of the Cross through unimaginable sufferings like unto death. Let us turn to her in full confidence then, confiding to Her Maternal Heart all our trials and sufferings. Our Lady will heal and comfort us, restoring to us the joy which comes forth from living in union with her Divine Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, helping Him to carry His Cross."
