R.I.P. Little Mother

Today is the 10th anniversary of the death of our Carmelite sisters’ beloved “Little Mother,” the founder of the Carmelite monastery in my hometown of Jefferson City Missouri. She died during the celebration of Holy Mass on the last day of the novena to Our Lady of Mount Carmel, their holy patroness. I never knew who she was, but, after the car accident that left me paralyzed, the good sisters blessed me with Little Mother’s personal scapular (not the big brown habit one) to wear in the hope of obtaining the miracle of my being able to walk again. I wore the scapular for quite a while, but it began to wear down and come apart a little bit, so I decided I should probably take it off for fear of completely ruining it. But I keep it as a reminder of the sisters’ belief in the healing power of God and the holiness of this blessed Little Mother.

May her soul and the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God rest in peace. And, if it be in accordance with the will of God, may the holiness of her life be made known to the world.
