The novena to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel started July 7th. We can start it today - July 9th. We have so much to ask our Good Mother for during this Novena. I bring to you the ailing Church and the suffering priests for our intentions to pray for.
Just Sunday, July 7th, the first day of the novena to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, a good orthodox priest at Assumption Grotto Parish in Detroit, MI has been pulled from his parish as they investigate an allegation made by a man in his 50's when he was an altar boy under Fr. Perrone. Fr. Perrone is a Third Order Carmelite and his own mother, also a Third Order Carmelite, passed away on the Feast of St. Teresa of Avila, October 15 a few years back. Our Lady has Her mantle around him and I know he is in good hands; but the enemy is seeking to cause scandal and destruction in the Church. I found different stories on different sources. Since Michael Voris is a parishioner at Assumption Grotto and he has made news reports thus far on this type of thing -- his story seems very credible knowing the character of Fr. Perrone from the years I knew him. (Posted below)
Please pray and make sacrifices for the Church. Please pray for Fr. Perrone and all priests who are suffering.
God bless and may Our Lady of Mt. Carmel pray for us and all priests!
