Novena to Our Lady of Mount Carmel
July 15 – Day Nine
Immaculate Virgin and Queen of Carmel, thou art the hope of the sufferer and the consolation of the afflicted. Look not upon my sins, but remember only that I am a poor soul redeemed by the Precious Blood of Thy Son, and that my heart is sealed with the holy scapular. Hear my prayer and if it be for the glory of God, thy honor and for the salvation of my soul, grant what I ask in this novena. Amen.
O Mary, most holy Mother of Carmel, Virgin of virgins, sanctuary of the Blessed Trinity, mirror of angels, assured refuge of sinners! Have compassion on me in my sufferings, listen to my sighs with clemency, and appease the anger of thy Son. Amen. (Composed by St. John of the Cross) Hail Mary (three times)
Flower of Carmel Prayer
O most beautiful flower of Mount Carmel, Fruitful Vine, Splendor of Heaven, Blessed Mother of the Son of God, Immaculate Virgin assist me in this 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 thee from the bottom of my heart, to succor me in this necessity; there is none that withstand your power. O show me herein you are my Mother.
O Mary conceived without sin,
Pray for us who have recourse to thee
(repeat 3 times)
I place this cause in your hands.
(repeat 3 times)
Thoughts to Ponder:
Today we implore the Virgin of virgins to “appease the anger of thy Son.” St. John of the Cross, who lived in the late 15th century, composed the prayer we just said. Now, think of how much more Jesus is offended with our world today! Abortion up until birth is still allowed in some states, rampant contraception and sexual immorality, unnatural same sex unions, gender confusion, domestic violence, atheism, demonic activity, worshiping false gods, and the breakdown of the domestic family, not to mention Catholics receiving Holy Communion in the state of mortal sin. Let us pray this litany, begging Our Lady of Mount Carmel, to ask her Son Jesus, to have mercy on the world.
Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy. Christ, hear us.
Christ, graciously hear us.

Our Lady of Mount Carmel, glorious Queen of Angels, channel of God's tenderest mercy to man, refuge and advocate of sinners, with confidence I prostrate myself before thee, beseeching thee to obtain for us (a sincere reparation for our sins and the sins of the world –then mention your intentions.) In return I solemnly promise to have recourse to thee in all my trials, sufferings and temptations, and I shall do all in my power to induce others to love and reverence thee and to invoke thee in all their needs. I thank thee for the numberless blessings which I have received from thy mercy and powerful intercession. Continue to be my shield in danger, my guide in life, and my consolation at the hour of death. Amen
