St Berthold's Feast Day. . . .



. . . .was yesterday. He used to be greatly honoured in the Carmelite Order as one of the founders of the Order in its western, European incarnation, the Prophet Elias being the Dux et Pater. But these days he doesn't even appear in the calendar. The picture shows some of the remains of the early monastery on Mt Carmel.

There's a little essay on his life here.
