"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Ornament and splendor of Carmel

We fly to your patronage, O holy Mother of God, despise not our petitions in our necessities; but deliver us from all dangers, O ever glorious and Blessed Virgin.

Mother and Ornament of Carmel pray for us.

That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Ornament and splendor of Carmel, you who regard with an eye of special kindness those who wear your blessed habit, look down benignly upon us and encompass us with the mantle of your special protection.  Clothe and cover our unworthiness with such graces and virtues as will ever be pleasing to your divine Son and to you.  Assist us in life, console us in death with your most amiable presence, and present us to the most glorious Trinity as your devoted servants and children; that we may eternally bless and praise you in paradise.  Amen.

Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with you.
