As we are a Carmelite parish, this Marian holiday trumps all others, and of course we have to bring on the Marian hymns. The second half of the homily was given by an M. D. from Tenafly who was appealing for funds to assist a small medical center he volunteers at located in the rural north of Haiti, which provides the only services for a quarter of a million impoverished people in the poorest country of the Western Hemisphere.
