Young Catholic Adult 2014 Weekend at Douai Consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

A Solemn Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
                                             

Most Holy Virgin Mary, tender Mother of men, to fulfill the desires of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the request of the Vicar of Your Son on earth, we consecrate ourselves and our families to your Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, O Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, and we recommend to You, all the people of our country and all the world.

Please accept our consecration, dearest Mother, and use us as You wish to accomplish Your designs in the world.

O Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, and Queen of the World, rule over us, together with the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ, Our King. Save us from the spreading flood of modern paganism; kindle in our hearts and homes the love of purity, the practice of a virtuous life, an ardent zeal for souls, and a desire to pray the Rosary more faithfully.

We come with confidence to You, O Throne of Grace and Mother of Fair Love. Inflame us with the same Divine Fire which has inflamed Your own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. Make our hearts and homes Your shrine, and through us, make the Heart of Jesus, together with your rule, triumph in every heart and home.

Amen.

--Venerable Pope Pius XII

The Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel





The Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel has been in existence for approximately 700 years. It is said that , Saint Simon Stock, General of the Carmelite Order in the thirteenth century, saw Our Lady in a vision in 1251 and presented him with the well-known brown scapular, a garment, reaching from the shoulders to the knees. It was given as a guarantee, for all who died wearing it, of Her heavenly protection from eternal damnation.

Devotion to the Scapular spread post haste throughout the Christendom. Pope after successive Pope enriched it with various indulgences, and there were many miracles associated with it .

In 1858 at Lourdes, Bernadette said that the Virgin appeared on July 16th, the feast day of Our Lady of Mount Carmel (which was the very day the Church commemorates Her appearance to Saint Simon Stock). On October 13, 1917, at Fatima the three Shepard children – Lucia, Jacinta and Francisco stated that Mary appeared to them as Our Lady of Mount Carmel. In a general sense, wearing the Scapular is a sign of someone’s commitment and devotion to Our Lady.

Individuals can be enrolled in the Scapular after the YCA High Mass and Marian Procession on Saturday 20th September 2014 in the Parish Church at Douai Abbey. 

Our Lady of Mount Carmel – pray for us.

The Schola Gregoriana of Cambridge will be assisting in the 2014 Young Catholic Adults weekend in Douai Abbey. They will be providing Gregorian Chant Workshops among other things. Christopher Hodgkinson will be leading the Schola at this event.

The Schola website states that:- it was "founded in 1975 by Dr Mary Berry, a Cambridge musician and musicologist, in order to ensure that the chant should continue to be taught, and that all those who wished to sing and study this profoundly spiritual and ancient music should be able to do so. It became a registered charity in 1984.The Schola aims to promote the teaching and singing of Gregorian chant and, whenever possible, to foster its study and research."

For more details about the Schola  please see http://www.scholagregoriana.org/
