Our Lady, Mother of Divine Grace
July 23. Thus ends the octave of the Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel.
Image: Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, T. Nelson. !980's. Acrylic and gold leaf on panel.
I can't recall the exact date that I painted this image of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel with St.s John and Teresa, but it was sometime in the 1980's. At one time it was used for the cover of Soul magazine - both Spanish and English editions, and prints were subsequently sold through the World Apostolate of Fatima in New Jersey. The original is in the possession of a local Carmelite community of men.
