MEMORIAL OF OUR LADY OF MOUNT CARMEL
The holy queen of hearts

Mary, the saint of saints, is also a person for all people. Many communities and cultures have a special closeness to her, a testimony of her closeness to the people. Mary was also close to the hermits of Mount Carmel located in the Holy Land of the 12th and 13th centuries. Eventually known as Carmelites, they prayed with Mary and sought her guidance as they walked in faith. They saw in Mary a person of deep prayer who could ponder and hold “all things in her heart.” In what ways can Mary accompany you in a more contemplative stance in the world?

BELIEF IN THE RESURRECTION

George went on a vacation to the Middle East with most of his family including his mother-in-law. During their vacation and while they were visiting Jerusalem, George’s mother-in-law died. With the death certificate in hand, George went to the American Consulate to make arrangements to send the body back to the States for proper burial. The Consul, after hearing of the death of the mother-in-law, told George that the sending of a body back to the States for burial is very, very expensive. It could cost as much as $5,000. The Consul continued, “In most cases the person responsible for the remains normally decides to bury the body here. This would only cost $150.” George thought for some time and answered, “I don’t care how much it will cost to send the body back; that’s what I want to do.” The Consul, after hearing this, said, “You must have loved your mother-in-law very much, considering the difference in price.” “No, it’s not that!” said George. “You see, I know of a case many years ago of a person, by name Jesus, who was buried here in Jerusalem. On the third day he arose from the dead. I just can’t take that chance.”
