Yesterday was a very special day for us regular Classical Mass attendees. It was our day to thank and honor our Lady of Mt. Carmel. As Father Jojo pointed out, the Summorum Pontificum of Pope Benedict XVI was released July 7, 2007, the first day of the novena to our Lady of Mt. Carmel. We saw new faces including third order Carmelites wearing their traditional garments and veils.
Father Jojo and the third order Carmelites lead a procession around the vicinity of Sikatuna Village while we prayed the rosary. Most of those who joined the procession were above middle age and yet they were able to walk under the heat of the afternoon sun. Truly a sign of great love and devotion for our Lady.
