Novena to Our Lady Of Mount Carmel, second day

Second Day

Most Holy Mary, Our Mother, in your great love for us you gave us the Holy Scapular of Mount Carmel, having heard the prayers of your chosen son Saint Simon Stock. Help us now to wear it faithfully and with devotion. May it be a sign to us of our desire to grow in holiness.

Say: Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be

Our Lady of Mount Carmel, pray for us.
