The stole (a detail above) is from Mother L. in bella Roma. Thank you! She also sent in some other things for Holy Mass:
Very appropriate for the Holy Sacrifice. Here’s another detail of the top of the stole. It’s rare these days to find a cross. There should be a cross. The priest kisses the cross on the stole before placing it around his neck, saying, as you know, this tremedous prayer about the stole of immortality lost by our first parents. Yikes! Thank you, Mother L!
Thanks also go to M.L.S., for the gift to the hermitage, which was placed with some words of encouragement in this wonderful card, which I promptly claim as florae for the Immaculate Conception.
Thanks go to L.F., who sent in this card of Our Lady of Mount Carmel delivering, with the help of the angels, the souls in purgatory. Notice the scapular in the hands of the infant Jesus. You do know that our Lady of Lourdes appeared on 16 July to Saint Bernadette, while the latter was kneeling where the future OCD monastery was to built, don’t you? You do know that our Lady of Fatima appeared as our Lady of Mount Carmel (and our Lady of Sorrows), don’t you?
L.F. also sent in a Mass intention and a gift for Holy Souls Hermitage. Thanks, L.F.!
May the Lord continue to bless you and all benefactors and readers according to the perfect intercession of the Immaculate Conception.
