Our Lady of Mount Carmel
Our Lady of Mount Carmel is Mary's title as patroness of the Carmelite Order, which began on Mount Carmel near Jerusalem more than 800 years ago. Our Lady of Mount Carmel is most often seen on the brown scapular, a sacramental worn around the neck. The scapular is a silent prayer that tells Mary throughout the day that we venerate her, love her and trust in her protection.
