More to Learn about Our Lady, Mother of Divine Grace

July 27, 2019

An important Marian celebration associated with the Order of Discalced Carmelites is the Memorial of ”Our Lady, Mother of Divine Grace,” celebrated on July 23.  What connection does this title have to “Our Lady of Mt. Carmel?”  What other connections are present?  How is it important for all of us?  What is “grace” and what kinds of grace are available to us?  How do we obtain more grace?  What unique role does the Blessed Mother play?  What application does that have to the beginning words of the Angelic Salutation: “Hail, full of grace,” directed to Mary?  How can knowing that help us to pray more fervently?
