To My Special Carmelite Friend....

Darling, not just anyone can get me to post a video that advocates heavy drinking on my blog, but this song hook is seriously the best mantra to fighting the Devil of Despair. "I get knocked down, but I get up again! You're never gonna keep me down!"

Remember that putting on our brown scapular paints a giant Target on our back. In the words of the late, great Peggy W. "don't tell anyone the truth about suffering in Carmel. Keep it under wraps. Otherwise, they'll never come in the door."

I'm your personal prayer warrior. I've totally got your back in any bar brawl with the Devil!


Chumbawamba - Tubthumping



(PS Everyone else, please pray for all the Third Orders and all of our dear priests and religious. It's unbelievable how much stress we endure before making vows of obedience.)

Love that song. And it has also occurred to me before that it is a perfect anthem for my spiritual life. Ain't nothing gonna keep you guys down.

You've got my prayers for sure.
