A BEAUTIFUL Divine Mercy Sunday!!
Yesterday was such a GREAT, great day!! Divine Mercy Sunday, Beatification of Pope John Paul II (we share a birthday of May 18th)....AAAND I was able to receive my Ceremonial Scapular with The Secular Order of Discalced Carmelites!! Everything was perfect! Because it was Divine Mercy Sunday, I was able to receive the scapular in front of the EXPOSED BLESSED SACRAMENT!! Music...The Divine Mercy Chaplet...Adoration....Fellowship....WHAT A DAY!! I was smiling ALL DAY LONG!! The only way it could have been even better, would be if my two sons could have been there with me, but it was still BEAUTIFUL!!
I chose the devotional name of 'Therese Regina of the Pieta'....Therese, for 'The Little Flower', being my sweet little friend, Regina for the Blessed Mother, as well as my favorite teacher in 4th Grade, Sister Ann Regina, and The Pieta, because it became very dear to me a couple of years ago,during Lent when my own two sons were becoming young men and were no longer children. I'm still sooooo HAPPY even today!! God is so good to me!!
