2017 Novena to Our Lady of Mount Carmel. This year our reflections for this beautiful feast will focus on the scapular, which is a reflection in miniature of the habit worn by the friars, nuns and lay Carmelites as a sign of their vocation and devotion. Read on for details about the schedule — including dates, times, and locations — for this year’s novena at Holy Spirit Church.
Divine Intimacy by Fr. Gabriel of St. Mary Magdalen, O.C.D., is based on the Teresian method of prayer. I have found it a rich source of meditation and highly recommend it. If you are using Divine Intimacy for meditation and would like to follow the liturgical seasons, you may be interested in downloading the free 2017 calendar guide prepared by Chris Larmour PDF— a former seminarian, who created and continues to maintain the calendar as a labor of love.
