Novena Day 1:  7th July
O Flower of Carmel, blossoming vine, splendor of heaven, most special 
virgin and
humble mother who gave birth to the Son of God, still ever r
emaining a virgin,
look with favour on us in our need. O Star of the Sea.

Novena Day 2:  8th July

Most Holy Mary, Our Mother, in your great love for us you gave us the holy Scapular
of Mount Carmel in response to the prayers of your Carmelite Children. Help us now to
wear it faithfully and with devotion. May it be a sign to us of our love for your Son, Jesus.

Novena Day 3:  9th July

O Mary, chosen daughter of the Father, you gave us the Scapular as an outward sign 
by which we might be known as your faithful children. May we always wear it with honour
by avoiding sin and imitating your virtues. Help us to be faithful to this desire of ours.

Novena Day 4:  10th July

O Mary, joy of the new Israel, when you gave us the Scapular as our habit, you called us to be not only servants, but also your own children. We ask you to gain for us from your Son the grace to live as your children in joy, peace and love.

Novena Day 5:  11th July

O Mother of Fair Love, through your goodness we are called, as your children to live in the spirit of Carmel. Help us to live in charity with one another, prayerful as Elijah of old and mindful of our call to minister to God’s people.

Novena Day 6:  12th July

O Mother most Amiable, with loving care you covered us with your Scapular as a shield 
of defence against the Evil One. Through your assistance may we bravely struggle and
overcome the powers of evil, always open to your Son Jesus Christ.

Novena Day 7:  13th July

O Mary, Help of Christians, you assured us that wearing your Scapular worthily would keep
us safe from harm. Protect us in both body and soul with your continual aid. May all that
we do be pleasing to your Son and to you.

Novena Day 8:  14th July

O Mother of Mercy, you give us hope that through your Scapular promise we might enjoy
your special protection in the daily struggle to be faithful to your Son and to you. Be our
comfort and our hope. Grant that we may speedily enjoy after death the blessed company
of Jesus and the saints.

Novena Day 9:  15th July

O Most Holy Mother of Mount Carmel, you have given assurance of your Motherly love and
help to those faithful to you and to your Son. We glory in wearing your holy Scapular which
makes us members of your family of Carmel, through which we shall have your powerful
protection in life, at death and even after death.

Prayer to Our Lady of Mount Carmel

O most blessed and immaculate Virgin, ornament and splendour of Carmel, you regard with an eye of special kindness those who wear your blessed habit. Look down benignly upon me and cover me with the mantle of your special protection. Strengthen my weakness with your power; enlighten the darkness of my mind with your wisdom; increase
in me faith, hope and charity; adorn my soul with such graces and blessing as will ever be pleasing to your divine Son and to you. Assist me in life and console me in death with your most amiable presence and present me to the most august Trinity as your devoted servant and child that I may eternally bless and praise you in heaven. Amen.

Our Lady of Mount Carmel, pray for us.
