I know how to celebrate the 4th – at the Carmel! July 1, 2014

I asked in the previous post whether or how faithful Catholics should celebrate Independence Day.  Well, here is one really good idea – skip the fireworks and offer up prayers for the conversion of this nation and its government/leaders with the Carmelites in Dallas!

All Night Adoration starts at 5 pm, and goes all night until 7 am!  There are TLMs at 8 pm and 3 am with Confession generally before and after each Mass!  Vigil ends with First Saturday NO Mass.

There is also the Confraternity of the Holy Face devotions Sunday at 3:30 pm.

The nuns will storm Heaven!

Sadly, I will be out of town and will be unable to attend.  If you would, in your charity, say a prayer for my travels and my being around heavy farm machinery and numerous firearms.  Another way to celebrate this nation’s independence is to engage profligately your 2nd Amendment rights!  I plan on expending hundreds of rounds!  We’re going to have a “mad minute” exercise, to see who can fire the most at least somewhat aimed rounds in a minute from their semi-autos.  I will win, even though I don’t shoot girly 5.56!

There is also Adoration with Benediction at St. Peter’s in Dallas on July 4. I believe the Benediction is in Latin, but MJD may have to correct me.  MJD, I lost the times, leave a comment or send an e-mail and I’ll update.  Other parishes around, like St. Mark, also have 24 hour Adoration on First Friday.
