Quote/s of the Day – 16 July

In Hebrew Carmel means “garden” and expresses
not only the richness of the natural verdure which covers the mountain like a multicolored tapestry but also the grace and excellence of the many saints who flourished and flowered on its mystical summit…
Tall, majestic, strong and spacious, this Palestinian promontory,
rising out of the edge of the blue Mediterranean, was the site of many Biblical events.
It was the place of seclusion for early Christian monks who lived and prayed in its caves.
It was also the scene of battle and bloodshed for marauding armies:
-Saracens, Turks, and even Napoleon’s French troops-
who climbed its heights and left their destructive mark.
Both mountain and symbol, it stands as an enduring and tangible
testimony that the spirit of the great realities enacted there
will never be lost.

It was to St. Simon Stock, in a moment of ardent petition
for the preservation of the Order, that “the most glorious Mother of God appeared…
holding in her blessed hand the Scapular of Carmel and assured him of her predilection for those who would wear it piously.

In her appearance to Friar Stock, Mary entrusted him
with the Brown Scapular.

“Those who die devotedly clothed with this scapular
shall be preserved from eternal fire.”

“The brown scapular is a badge of salvation.
The brown scapular is a shield in time of danger.
The brown scapular is a pledge of peace
and special protection, until the end of time.”

“Wear the Scapular devoutly and perseveringly.
It is my garment.
To be clothed in it means you are continually
thinking of me, and I in turn,
am always thinking of you
and helping you to secure eternal life.”

Our Lady to St Simon Stock

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco With the Saints, we "serve the Lord with one consent and serve the Lord with one pure language, not indeed to draw them forth from their secure dwelling-places, not superstitiously to honour them, or wilfully to rely on the, ... but silently to contemplate them for edification, thereby encouraging our faith, enlivening our patience..." Blessed John Henry Newman Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings but rejects the Second Vatican Council as heretical and, therefore, all that followed it.
