Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel

with Saint Teresa of Avila and Saint John of the Cross

Let Us Pray

Our Lady of Mount Carmel, glorious Queen of Angels

Channel of God’s tenderest mercy to man

Refuge and advocate of sinners

I prostrate myself before you, beseeching you to obtain for me

(pause to mention request silently)

In return I solemnly promise to have recourse to you in all my trials, sufferings and temptations

And I shall do all in my power to induce others to love and reverence you and to invoke you all their needs

I thank you for the numberless blessings which I have received from your mercy and powerful intercession

Continue to be my shield in danger, my guide in life, and my consolation at the hour of death, Amen.


O Mary of Mount Carmel

You have never failed me

your humbled Carmelite daughter gratefully loves you
