July 7, 2022 - July 15, 2022: NOVENA TO OUR LADY OF MOUNT CARMEL


“Receive, my beloved son, this Habit; whosoever dies clothed in this shall not suffer eternal fire!”
(Our Lady to St. Simon Stock)

Flower of Carmel,
Vine blossom-laden,
Splendour of heaven,
Child-bearing maiden,
None equals thee!

O Mother benign,
Who no man didst know,
On all Carmel’s children
Thy favours bestow,
Star of the sea!


Prayer to Our Lady of Mount Carmel.
200 Days, once a day

O MOST blessed Virgin Immaculate, the beauty and splendour of Carmel, thou who regardest with eyes of special love those who wear thy blessed habit, look kindly upon me and spread over me the mantle of thy maternal protection. Strengthen my weakness with thy power, illuminate the darkness of my mind with thy wisdom, increase in me the virtues of Faith, Hope and Charity. Adorn my soul with such graces and virtues that it may be ever dear to thy divine Son and to thee. Assist me in life, console me in death, with thy dear presence, and present me to the Holy Trinity as thy child and devoted servant, eternally to praise and bless thee in Paradise. Amen.

Ave thrice and Gloria once.
