Smiles, laughter, crazy fun, Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, beautiful meditations on our Lady and womanhood...what more could you ask for? This year's Carmelite Days (photos above) hosted in April for girls in 6th-11th grade were a great success. Believe it or not, it was the timeless classic Cinderella that provided a thought-provoking theme for the day and a platform from which the Sisters shared their reflections on our mother, Mary, and Jesus, our prince.
"The old traditional fairy story is the story of God and the world: the King's Son who comes dressed as a beggar to win a poor girl for his bride, putting off His crown and His royal robes and coming empty handed, in order that she may receive Him without fear and may love Him for Himself alone." - Caryll Houselander
