Patron of Carmelites
Figurine comes nicely displayed in a clear fronted box with the the Story of the saint on the outside and a prayer card inside.
Mount Carmel is located about twenty miles from Nazareth and was used as a place of gathering before a vision of the Blessed Virgin appeared in 1251. It had become a place of Marian devotion where prayers were said in honor of the Blessed Virgin. By the twelfth century, the Order of Our Lady of Mt Carmel was founded and a church was built on the ascent of the mountain to honor her. This place of honor remains today a spiritual center for all religious vocations following the example of Our Lady.
The tradition of Our Lady of Mount Carmel tells us that St Simon Stock, a Carmelite friar, was in Aylesford., England, praying to the Blessed Virgin when she appeared to him. Our Lady was holding her Immaculate Son in her left arm and was wearing a brown gown with a white mantle and she was holding a brown scapular. She promised that it would be a sign for him and for all Carmelites that she would help to sustain the Carmelite Order. She promised too, that anyone who dies wearing the scapular would not suffer eternal fire. The wearing of the scapular became widespread in the church for the next seven centuries, and with it, the promise of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. With this widespread devotion came the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, declared in 1726 by Pope Benedict XIII.
Feast Day: July 16
