Hello dear Friends! We are back after our annual retreat and recuperating from the festivities that go along with celebrating a big feast day — the Solemnity of St. Therese of Lisieux. Since our Carmelite province has St. Therese as our Patroness we have the Church’s special permission to celebrate her day as a solemnity, rather than a “feast” as most other Carmelites do, or as a memorial as the rest of the Church does. So, we are blessed! We prayed and continue to pray for those who joined with us in our novena. And we thank our retreat master Fr. Peter Hammett, OSB for blessing us for a week of wisdom and inspiration.
Below are a few remembrances of the last couple weeks. Enjoy!
