Novena to the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel, Day Two

| | Comments (0)


O Most Holy Mother of God, we rejoice in God our Saviour Who covers us with the
Divine Protection of your prayers. Pondering your great benevolence in granting us a
visible symbol, so like the Mantle of Elias, of your great care for us as the Body of Christ
and our true spiritual Mother, we cry out:

Rejoice, Heavenly Mantle clothing us in the Power of the Spirit!
Rejoice, making unseen our spiritual nakedness and weakness!
Rejoice, for we are made happy under the wings of your Protection!
Rejoice, for in your Scapular, God has clothed us in the garments of salvation!
Rejoice, for you have wrapped us in the Cloak of integrity!
Rejoice, for we have become like a bridegroom wearing his wreath!
Rejoice, for we are like brides adorned in her jewels!
Rejoice, for through you the Spirit of the Lord is given to us!
Rejoice, for by you the Lord anoints us!
Rejoice, for He sends us, your children, to bring good news to the poor!
Rejoice, for you give us a commission to bind up hearts that are broken!
Rejoice, for we are enlivened to proclaim a year of favor from the Lord!
Rejoice, O Most Beautiful Flower of Carmel, Splendor of Heaven and Fruitful Vine
richly laden with Blossoms Divine
