6th Sunday After Pentecost 2014
This week we have the feasts of St. Mary Magdalen, St. James the Greater and St. Anne. This Mass repeats Holy Week for us and its sacraments of Baptism and the Holy Eucharist. Today is also the veiling day for one of the Carmelite Sisters which is rare in our world. The veil is the sign of consecration to Our Lord as the true Spouse of souls and the reserving of the look of the countenance to Him alone. Do not deny Jesus anything because no amount of generosity on our part can outdo that of the Savior. All the elements of this beautiful ceremony express the joy, peace, sacrifice and eternal reward that a contemplative vocation embodies.
