The Carmelite Calendar

There are two possibilities for today. In the old calendar a medieval Carmelite brother, Bl Francum Lippi, was honoured today. In the new calendar a recent canonisation takes his place, St Maria Maravillas de Jesus who evaded the persecutions of the communists in 1930's Spain and lived to found several houses of the Order.

More can be found at last year's post here. Although one of the referenced links seems to be AWOL.

(And where are my archives disappearing to? God bless Blogspot, anyway.)
