Fr. Z Puts Up a Nice Mass Proper for the Feast of St. Elijah


“….on this solemn feast of blessed Elijah, your Prophet and our father: who, at your word, arose like fire, closed the sky, raised the dead, smote the tyrants, killed the impious, and laid the foundations of the monastic life….”

All the Carmelite orders take inspiration from St. Elijah (the order of friars was first founded by a guy living on Mount Carmel in imitation of Elijah), so this is a big feast for them.

Carmelite readings and prayers for the Feast of St. Elijah. In English. 🙂
