Novena to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel

Begin on July 7

Begin the Novena after the Sign of the Cross, thanking Our Lord for the many graces He has given you including the grace to make this Novena. Then, each day meditate on one of the virtues of Our Lady, which you wish to follow such as:

Instrument of God

At the conclusion of your meditation,
recite Flos Carmeli (Flower of Carmel)

Flower of Carmel Vine ever blossoming, Joy of heaven And favored by the King As no other

To bear God’s Son And still a virgin be, Bless your children, O bright Star of the Sea Gentle Mother.

Root of Jesse Whence came the wondrous flower Keep us with you Through life’s uncertain hour And forever.

Amid earth’s thorns As lily pure you rise, Guard our frail minds To keep us chaste and wise; Teach us ever.

Trusted armor, Protection in the war Waged with evil, Oh, may your scapular Sign and save us.

In fear and doubt Your counsels wise provide: In our sorrows Be that consoling guide Whom God gave us.

Queen and Mother Of Carmel, throned above, Feast your children On your own joy, with love Deep and tender.

O Key and Door Which opens paradise, Lead us, Mother, To where your glory lies In star-crowned splendor.

Follow this with an Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be, before ending with this Prayer

O God, who has honored the Order of Carmel with the special title of your Blessed Mother Mary, ever Virgin, grant in your mercy that we, who keep her memory this day, may be shielded by her protection and be found worth to attain joy eternal. We ask this through Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with God the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end.

  Then, after a while, people get fed up with the absolutely rational and logical culture, and rediscover religion and the affective part of the human soul and its needs.

  And Mary is one of those.

Love and support for Pope Francis
The Church is certainly a human and historical institution with all that entails, yet her nature is not essentially political but spiritual: the Church is the People of God, Holy People of God making its way to encounter Jesus Christ. Only from this perspective can a satisfactory account be given of the Church's life and activity.

  Christ is the Church's Pastor, but his presence in history passes through the freedom of human beings; from their midst one is chosen to serve as his Vicar, the successor of the Apostle Peter.

  Yet Christ remains the center, not the Sucessor of Peter: Christ, Christ is the centre.

A Million Roses for the World
A gift of love, faith and goodwill from the people of the Philippines. Pope Pius IX once said: “Give me an army praying a million rosaries a day and we will conquer the world.” We are not out to conquer the world…but to save it for God to whom it rightly belongs.
