CONSECRATION TO OUR LADY OF MOUNT CARMEL


One Day, through the Rosary and the Scapular, I will save the world 


(Our Lady to St. Dominic)

O Mary, Queen of all Saints, who art the beauty of Carmel, how sweet it is for me to venerate thee under the title of Our Lady of Mount Carmel.



Even from the days of the Apostles, thou hast been honored under this mystic title; I am filled with joy as I consecrate myself to thee, O holy Mary, most unworthy though I am to be thy servant, yet touched by thy motherly care for me and longing to serve thee, in the presence of my Guardian Angel and the court of Heaven, I choose thee this day to be my Queen, my Advocate, and my Mother, and I firmly purpose to serve thee ever more and to do what I can that all may render faithful service to thee.


Therefore, most devoted Mother, through the Precious Blood thy Son poured out for me, and through the promises of thee as Our Lady of Mount Carmel, I beg thee, deign to take me among thy clients and receive me as thy servant forever.

O beauty of Carmel, glory of Libanus, thou purest of lilies, mystic rose in the garden of the Church, I salute thee! O Virgin of virgins, be mindful of me in my misery, and show thyself my Mother.



Shed upon me ever more and more the living light of that faith which made thee blessed; inflame with that Heavenly love wherewith thou didst love thy dear Son, Jesus Christ.



Do thou, Mother of God, who hast such power and might, obtain for me from blessed Jesus, the Heavenly gifts of humility, chastity, and meekness, which were the fairest ornaments of thine Immaculate soul.


Do thou grant me to be strong in the midst of the temptations and bitterness which so often overwhelm my spirit. Aid me in every action, and beg for me the grace, never, by word or deed or thought, to be displeasing in thy sight and that of thy most holy Son. Think of me my dearest Mother, and desert me not at the hour of death. Amen.

(Here, you kiss your Scapular)

Holy Virgin of Mount Carmel, Our Lady of the Scapular, 
pray for us!
Holy Virgin of Mount Carmel, Our Lady of the Scapular, 
protect us!
Holy Virgin of Mount Carmel, Our Lady of the Scapular, 
save us!
