I planned on posting this yesterday. However, a storm came through and knocked out our wireless internet access. So, I am posting this in the local library and will have to make it brief.
As you all know, Our Lady of Mount. Carmel’s feast is coming up on July 16. The Carmelites, who trace their spiritual heritage to the Prophet Elijah, honor Our Lady under the title, “Our Lady of Mount. Carmel.” Her garment, the Brown Scapular, carries the promise of safety from the fires of Hell. Our Lady’s protection is so powerful! Would you please be so kind as to join the Carmelites and me in praying this novena in honor of Our Lady?
Novena to Our Lady of Mount Carmel
Most Beautiful Mother of God, Splendor of Heaven you bring fruitfulness to the earth and assist us in our needs. Star of the Sea, show yourself a mother to me. Let the healing rain of your comfort fall gently upon me. Hear my voice when I call. Mother of God, I place my cause in your hands. Amen.
(My Prayer Book Regina Press)
