Another Collection (Religious)

I started a collection

All-Of-A-Kind Family Family Connection?

This post is adapted from a post in one of my old blogs.

I recently re-read Sydney Taylor's "All-Of-A-Kind Family" series.
Last year, I came across this website.
The second picture shows the family so familiar to the readers of the series, but it is the picture on top that means even more to me. You see, my Baba came from the same place as the grandparents in that picture, and she was born in 1902. Could at least some members of their family and mine have known each other?

Our Lady of Mount Carmel

Today, the monks who make Mystic Monk coffee must be celebrating big time! After all, they are Carmelites, and this is the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel.
So which of their coffees did I have this morning? This one, of course!
