Our Lady of the Brown Scapular | Lay Carmelite Group

Our Lady of the Brown Scapular | Lay Carmelite Group

I have in the past requested prayers for my Carmelite group and now I'd like to thank each and everyone of you who have prayed. I can see the Lord at work in a big way...please keep those prayers coming. Please say a prayer for me also, they have chosen me as Formation Director so that means that I will be in charge (with God's grace) of helping the new members with their discernment and formation process.

If you happen to live in the area and think that you may have an interest in Lay Carmelite spirituality, check out the link above.

USCCB - NAB - Psalm 100

USCCB - NAB - Psalm 100: "Psalms
Chapter 100
1 A psalm of thanksgiving. Shout joyfully to the LORD, all you lands;
worship the LORD with cries of gladness; come before him with joyful song.
2 Know that the LORD is God, our maker to whom we belong, whosepeople we are, God's well-tended flock.
Enter the temple gates with praise, its courts with thanksgiving. Give thanks to God, bless his name;
good indeed is the LORD, Whose love endures forever, whose faithfulness lasts through every age."

Oh dear Lord, how often our focus is on the negative that surrounds us from all sides, instead of looking to You and trusting that You can make good of anything. Thank You Lord...for all You have given us...for all You have done for us...for all that You are!
