Entrance Antiphon for the Carmelite Solemnity of Our Lady of Mount Carmel,
which is celebrated today throughout the Church as an optional memorial:
The glory of Lebanon is given to her, the beauty of Carmel and Sharon; they shall see

the glory of the Lord, and the splendor of our God. (Isaiah 33:2)

Communion Antiphon:
Mary treasured all these words and pondered them in her heart.

Prayer after Communion:
Let us pray. Lord God, we have been nourished by the Body and Blood of your Son.
May the wonders of your love strengthen us and help us to follow more faithfully
the example of the Blessed Virgin Mary to whose service we are dedicated.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.

  • Regina Decor Carmel, ora pro nobis!

    “O’Blessed and Immaculate Virgin Mary, beauty and glory of Carmel, Thou regardest with special affection those who wear Thy holy habit. Deign to cast a favourable look on me also, and to cover me with the mantle of Thy maternal protection. Fortify my weakness by Thy power, enlighten the darkness of my mind by Thy wisdom; increase my faith, hope, and charity; adorn my soul with graces and virtues, so that I may always be the object of the love of Thy Divine Son, and of Thee. Assist me in life, console me by Thy gracious presence at the hour of my death, and present me to the Most Holy Trinity as Thy child, and thy devoted servant, to praise and bless Thee eternally in paradise, Amen.”

    • Amen

    • Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us now and at the hour of our death, Amen
