Today (16 July) is the Feast Day of Our Lady of Mount Carmel.
The memory of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel, venerated with particular devotion by St. Annibale Maria, expresses a profound relationship with the Charism of the Rogate. On Mount Carmel Elijah had carried out his mission as “prophet of the divine zeal”, foreshadowing “the zeal of Christ for the glory of the Father” which was also evident in the command of the prayer for the labourers of the harvest.
Today also is the second anniversary of the Election of Mo. Elna Casimsiman as the provincial Superior and the provincial Council. We continue to pray for them that they may serve zealously the institute and untiringly accompany the sisters in the Our Lady of Divine Zeal province.
