Novena Prayers
to
Our Lady of Mount Carmel

The feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel is on July 16. In preparation for this feast, a novena is usually prayed prior to the feast day itself.

Below are novena prayers from three Carmelite monasteries in our province. You may download whichever version you prefer and we invite you to pray the novena, hoping that through Our Lady's intercession, God may grant your petitions and bestow much grace upon you.

Prayer for the 2017 Regional OCDS Congress

Mary-and-Jesus-stained-glass

Heavenly Father, we ask You to bless us as we prepare for our 2017 Regional Congress in San Antonio.
May we be open to the promptings of the Holy Spirit
as we focus on our vocation of love at the heart of the Church.
Guide and strengthen us as we work together.
Help us to overcome any difficulties that may come our way. Grant that our Congress will be a grace­filled event for all. Through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary,
Mother of God and Queen of Carmel, may we each do whatever we can to help “put love where there is no love,
so we may find love in the Church,
in our families and in the world”.

We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

–OCDS Province of St. Thérèse
