Mount Carmel feast celebrated in Bengaluru

Bengaluru: The Solemnity of Our Lady of Mount Carmel was celebrated with great devotion and fervor at Sadbhavana, the Carmelite Provincialate at Rajajinangar.

The Holy Eucharist was presided over by Fr Stifan Perera, OCD Director of Dhyanavana Publications. In his festal homily, he invited the devotees to fight the spiritual fight with the help of the Scapular which is a sign of Mary’s maternal protection and intercession. “As our earthly mothers make a great sacrifice in providing us with clothing which gives us identity, protection and respect, so too our Heavenly Mother has clothed us with her Scapular.” He invited us to wear it with devotion and inculcate her virtues in life. “It is not enough that we wear the scapular, we need to adorn our life with her virtues,” he said.

The celebration was attended by many devotees from in and around Bengaluru. Fr Johannes Gorantla, Definitor General of the Carmelites, Fr Dolphy Pais, OFC Cap, Provincial Superior of the Capuchins, Fr Charles Serrao, Provincial Superior of the Carmelites and many other priests concelebrated at the Eucharist.

Carmel Kutam, a lay association handed over the scholarship to the needy children and scapulars were distributed after the Eucharist. A sumptuous meal was served to enhance the festal joy.
