Happy New Year to all Secular Carmelites, especially to the members in our Holy Family Community!
As the new year begins with the Solemnity of Our Lady, let us renew our efforts to become holy Carmelites under her patronage. Let us deepen our devotion to our Good Mother: Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. May she lead us safely to union with her Divine Son.
A Prayer to Our Lady of Mount Carmel
O Most beautiful Flower of Mount Carmel, Fruitful Vine, Splendour of Heaven, Blessed Mother of the Son of God, Immaculate Virgin, assist me in this my necessity. O Star of the Sea, help me and show me herein you are my Mother.
O Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth, I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart, to succour me in this necessity; there are none that can withstand your power.
O, show me herein you are my Mother, O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.
Sweet Mother, I place this cause in your hands. Amen.
Peace be with you!
