Our Lady of Mount Carmel

The feast of the Solemn Commemoration of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel is the principal feast of the order. It was first celebrated in the 14th century, and was gradually adopted throughout the Order as an occasion of thanksgiving for the countless blessings which Our Lady has bestowed on the Carmelite family. The gift of the Holy Scapular is the remembrance of the Virgin’s protection and of her great love for Carmelites.
