Our Lady of Mount Carmel

Today is the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, a patron of the diocese of Salford and a feast which is particularly dear to me. It has particular relevance for England, for is was at Aylesford in Kent in 1251 that Our Lady appeared to St. Simon Stock and gave to him the brown scapular, promising special graces to those who wear it. The full story is given here.

Our Lady of Mount Carmel, pray for us.
