The Introduction Prayer:

 

Blessed and Immaculate Virgin, splendid beauty of Carmel, you look with love on all who wear your blessed habit; look kindly on me and spread the mantle of your loving protection over all mankind.

 

By the power of your intercession strengthen my weakness, and by your wisdom light up the darkness of my mind.

 

Increase in me those virtues in which you excelled — faith, hope and love; adorn my soul with such graces and virtues that it may ever be pleasing to your divine Son.

 

Assist me in all the activities of life, and, by your presence console me at the time of my death.

 

In that hour present me to the Blessed Trinity as your child redeemed by the blood of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

 

O Queen, who are the beauty of Carmel, pray for us now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

 

Daily Prayer

 

When you gave us, Gracious Lady, the Scapular as our Habit, you called us to be not only servants, but also your own children. We ask you to gain for us from your Son the grace to live as your children in joy, peace and love.

Concluding Prayer

 

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, pray for us.

 

 

OR

 

 

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

 

God, thank You for the gift of Your Mother. She gives us such a remarkable example of perfect love and faith! What a role model we are blessed to have in her.

 

Our Lady of Mount Carmel, people sometimes struggle with their relationship with you. They believe that honoring you is like giving worship to God. 

 

Yet, your example of love can be so powerful and relatable. Sometimes, it is hard to relate to Jesus. He is so perfect and divine that it can be intimidating to approach Him. Yet, you were a mother. You were a daughter. You were a simple person, whose life was suddenly turned upside by God’s plan. I can relate to that feeling.

 

Our Lady, please bring me closer to you, and thus closer to Jesus, through this novena. Please aid the understanding of all who struggle with their relationship with you. Please comfort me in your motherly embrace. And please bring my intentions before your Son, especially…
