Novena to Our Lady of Mount Carmel: 2016

Our Lady of Mount Carmel

This year the reflections for our Novena to Our Lady of Mount Carmel will once again focus on the titles of Mary. In the Litany of Loreto, Mary is addressed in various ways (Seat of Wisdom, Queen of Angels, Morning Star, etc.). Each night during the novena we will reflect on one or more of these titles as we honor her and seek her guidance along our Carmelite journey.
