Hermits of the Blessed Virgin Mary 

of Mount Carmel  

 

As the Lord of hosts lives, whom I serve..."        1 Kings 18:15

 

Solemnity

of St. Elijah,

Prophet and

Our Father

July 20

Holy Mass at 10:00am

The Prophet Elijah appears in Scripture as a man of God who lived always in His presence and fought zealously for the worship of the one true God.  He defended God's law in a solemn contest on Mount Carmel, and afterwards was given on Mount Horeb an intimate experience of the living God.  The inspiration that was found in him from  the very beginnings of the Carmelite Order so pervades its whole history that the prophet may deservedly be called the founder of the Carmelite ideal.

 

Lord, please touch the hearts of people of good will 
who see this chapel, "a Jewel in the Desert," 
and inspire them to help us build it
 
for the honor and glory of God.
