Our Lady of Mount Carmel

Today in the Catholic world is a special feast day, especially among Carmelites...

"...because on that date in 1251, according to Carmelite traditions, the scapular was given by the Blessed Virgin to St. Simon Stock..."

You can see his picture with her giving him the scapular, on every brown scapular ever made that's big enough to put it on there. I have this great big one, about four by five inches, with a beautiful image of the Madonna with Child, that was given to me by Scapular John. (More on him later.) I'm wondering if I should wear it to the zydeco double-header tonight. After all, Louisiana is a Catholic land, right? Eh toi!!!
