Tomorrow, July 16 is the Commemoration of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. The piety of the faithful in several centuries wanted to honor the illustrious Mother of God with several titles and with acts of the most sincere homage. Let us remember that it was Pope John XXII in the fourteenth century who promoted devotion to Mary under this title: it is precisely this history that we must remember when the form of prayer and homage is becoming clearer and clearer.
