Getting Ready

There is large church in town dedicated to Our Lady of Mount Carmel, staffed by Carmelite priests. The Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel is next Tuesday, July 16. They are already getting ready for the big day (more to come on that…), including prominently positioning the statue in the church during the time of the novena leading up to it, vesting the statue in special garments, ringing the bells, setting off fireworks from the church roof (just the kind that make a loud bang), etc. Feast days are a very serious thing around here!

Note the train on her dress. One of the posters for the feast day advertised this particular feature; I’m not sure what the significance is, but apparently it’s an even bigger deal when her train is extended.
