Saint of the day - Our Lady of Mt. Carmel
Readings for today’s Mass
Our Lady of Mt. Carmel is one of many manifestations of Mary, the mother of Jesus - Our Lady of Fatima, of Lourdes, of the Snows, of Medjugorje, Mediatrix of all Graces, of Loreto and Guadalupe and the list goes on and on. Sometimes folks wonder where all these came from; even thinking we have gone too far and made Mary the fourth person of the Trinity. But, not so.
While Mary had a most unique and important role in salvation history, she is not God. Like other saints and all of our holy dead, Mary was someone with a clear and unique understanding of God’s plan for the salvation of the world and of her participation in it. So we honor her greatly for her holiness, her fidelity and for her sacrifice. Today we recognize her as Our Lady of Mt. Carmel.
