      Thank you. I’ll add her name to the list, and start working on a biography. Since her feast day is October 30th, I’ll make sure it’s posted by then.

      A very nice biography of her (15 pgs) can also be found in “Profiles in Holiness Vol II” by Fr. Redemptus M. Valabek – ISBN 88-7288-054-8

    Thank you for posting these feastdays. Our calendar does not have all these recorded.

  5. Harold Jeffers OCDS says:

    I was wondering if we could have some sort of notation with each Carmelite Feast day as to whether we are to observe:
    Optional Memorial

    Also, i’ve noticed these vary according to whether you are in the O’Carm or OCD tradition.

    • thirdordercarmelite says:

      Good idea. Yes – they do occasionally vary. I’ll see if I can put something together. Thank you for the suggestion.
