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

 

Most Holy Mary, Our Mother, in your great love for us you gave us the Holy Scapular of Mount Carmel, having heard the prayers of your chosen son Saint Simon Stock. Help us now to wear it faithfully and with devotion. May it be a sign to us of our desire to grow in holiness.

OR

 

 

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

 

God, You call all people to holiness. In a special way, however, you call all those in religious life to a particular kind of holiness. Thank you for the witness of these holy men and women!

 

Our Lady of Mount Carmel, please watch over your Carmelite sons and daughters. Please bless their charism of contemplation. Help them to grow deeper in knowledge of life and God. Open their minds to better understand God’s word and creation. Guide them to use this knowledge to share with others and change the world.

 

I pray that more people choose the religious life, especially over your patronage of the Carmelites. I also pray that more laity consider vocations to third orders. The laity can also grow in these disciplines and help the work of those in religious orders!

 

The General Intentions:

Those who are ill here at home and around the world!

 

At this time, I also ask that you bring before your Son my other intentions:

Prayer:

Mary, you are always with the brothers and sisters of your Son.

We entrust ourselves to you

in the midst of all that is happening to us.

Help us to protect and look after each other.

Be with those who mourn and those who are sick,

those who have lost jobs and hope.

Be with us in our fear and uncertainty. Don’t let worry and anxiety overcome us.

Be our source of hope.

Lend your strength to all those helping others and those who are caring for the sick.

Help us to end this disease.

Intercede for us with your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen

 

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