Your duty is to sanctify yourself. Yes, even you. Who thinks that this task is only for priests and religious? To everyone, without exception, our Lord said: Be ye perfect, as my heavenly Father is perfect. St. Josemaria

Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel

"The sign of the Scapular nourishes the devotion of believers and makes them sensitive to the Virgin Mother's loving presence in their lives. The Scapular is essentially a 'habit'. Those who receive it are associated with the Order of Carmel and dedicate themselves to the service of Our Lady for the good of the whole Church."

On the Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, we went to mass to celebrate such a beautiful day. When we came home, we bake a " Caramel Turtle Cake", its a stretch but close enough, when PrincessGirl was little, she would say.. Our Lady of Mt. Caramel! :)

I found this great coloring pages and the kids made their own scapulars out of paper. I really love dressing up the table in blue and having a very extra nice dinner in celebrating Our Lady's Feast Days. Its such a beauty our Faith!
