Let It Be

In the Bible we read how the Blessed Virgin Mary, Our Lady, was entirely open to God’s love and action in her life. It has been said that the Word of God was conceived in the Virgin Mary’s heart even before Jesus Christ was conceived in her womb. As a woman who pondered the Word, Mary was able to bring the Messiah into the waiting world. In this beautiful set of reflections by Father Joseph Chalmers, O.Carm., Mary, as we encounter her in the Scriptures, is presented to all Christians as a model of faith, hope and love

Mary and the Brown Scapular

According to Carmelite tradition, in the year 1251 the Virgin Mary appeared to Saint Simon Stock and gave him a brown scapular to wear as part of the Carmelite habit. A simplified version is used by lay members of the scapular confraternities which is two square pieces of cloth attached with strings, hanging back and front over the shoulders. Today the brown scapular of the Carmelites remains one of the most popular devotions in the Church. In this revised booklet, Fr Hugh shows the biblical foundations for the devotion and how the scapular has been understood by the Carmelite saints, as well as making that devotion come alive for us. Number of Pages: 60.
