If it hadn't been a Sunday. . .

. . .yesterday would have been the feast of All Saints of the Order of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel. At least in the Carmelite calendar it would have been.

Laudemus omnes Virginem,
Quae, sub figura candidae
Nubis,Prophetae splenduit
Carmeli in alto vertice.

But instead it was the 24th Sunday after Pentecost, this year the penultimate Sunday after Pentecost. Advent is in two weeks.
