Jul 16 – Homily – Fr Bonaventure: Our Lady of Mt Carmel
Homily #100716 ( 10min) Play - Today is the feast of Our Lady of Mt Carmel which commemorates the apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary to St Simon Stock a Carmelite Monk. During the apparition Our Lady gave St Simon the scapular, an apron-like piece of cloth worn outside of all Carmelites' habits (and by any lay person who wants to wear it under their clothes) as a sign of their trust in Our Lady's intercession. Father explains the symbolism of the scapular and the importance of Marian apparitions and devotions for upholding Christian doctrine and devotion.
