A Gift To Our Lady of Mount Carmel

Packaging Scapulars for the Children's Rosary
groups in Kenya
Today is the Memorial of Our Lady of Mount Carmel.  Several weeks ago in preparation for this beautiful day honoring Our Lady an idea came.  One of the members of the Children's Rosary had donated Brown Scapulars.  A short time later a request for Marian medals came from one of our Children's Rosary groups in Kenya.  While we did not have any medals we did have Scapulars.  Realizing that the Memorial of Our Lady of Mount Carmel was approaching an idea came that maybe the children in Kenya would love a Scapular and maybe the package might reach them in time for July 16th.  Quickly a message was sent off to one of the group leaders in Kenya. They responded rapidly that they would love Scapulars for the children.

Quickly a package was wrapped up and sent off.  It was our hope that this would be a gift to Our Lady.  To share the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel with children would be a wonderful way to honor her.

News arrived today from Kenya.  An email reporting that the package had arrived today, July 16th,  at the post office on the Memorial of Our Lady of Mount Carmel.  While mail from the United States to places like Africa is possible it is anything but exact and to have it arrive on such a beautiful day was complete joy. Indeed when we want to share a gift with Our Lady she always returns such generosity with love and joy.

A special thank you to the member of the Children's Rosary who donated the Scapulars and those who donate funds which help us pay for shipping to our different Children's Rosary groups around the world.

God Bless you all. Amen.
