Our Lady of Mount Carmel
Thursday, 16 July 2020

According to tradition, Saint Simon Stock was given the brown scapular by the Blessed Virgin on this day in 1251.

The Order of Carmel dates back to a group of Western hermits who in the 12th century settled on Mount Carmel, overlooking the plain of Galilee, in imitation of the prophet Elijah (1 Kings 18.19-46 and 2 Kings 2.25). They grouped themselves around a small chapel dedicated to Our Lady.

In the 13th century, the Order of Carmel as we know it was formed, retaining the twin devotions of the early hermits: to Elijah and his solitary prayer, and to Our Lady under the title ‘of Mount Carmel.
