Educators, teachers and parents love them.Our Lady of Mount Carmel is a title given to the Blessed Virgin Mary.It was on Mount Carmel, in Palestine, that the prophet Elijah prayed to God to rain during a terrible period of drought. God answered his prayers, and a cloud rose from the sea and brought down torrential rains that saved the people of Israel. The life of the prophet Elijah attracted many hermits to Mount Carmel. In the 12th century, the hermits built a chapel dedicated to Our Lady and founded the Order of the Brothers of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel.However, in England, the Brothers were being persecuted and mistreated by other religious orders. Then, the Prior General of the Carmelite religious order, St. Simon Stock, asked for Virgin Mary’s protection. As St. Simon prayed, the Virgin Mary appeared, surrounded by angels, handed him a Scapular and said it was a sign of her covenant, safeguard in dangers, covenant of peace and eternal love.The Scapular is a sign of love, trust and dedication to the Virgin Mary.When people heard of the Apparition, they wanted to have a Scapular, to have the protection of Our Lady, and the Carmelites stopped being persecuted.The Scapular is a sign of love, trust and dedication to the Virgin Mary.
