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

| | Comments (0)


We join with the Prophet Ezekiel in pondering the rich treasury of Grace that your most
holy Mantle of Carmel sends down on us who have put on the Lord Jesus Christ. Praying
unceasingly for your intercession before the Throne of Almighty God, we cry:

Rejoice, for through you God has bathed us in water, and anointed us with oil!
Rejoice, for through you God has given us a cloak of heavenly silk!
Rejoice, for He has bestowed on us a necklace for our throats!
Rejoice, for you have put on us a Divine diadem on our head!
Rejoice, for by you we are loaded with spiritual gold and silver!
Rejoice, for you place on us fine linen with embroidery!
Rejoice, for your food is the finest flour, honey and oil!
Rejoice, for you grow more and more beautiful!
Rejoice, for you rose to be Queen of Heaven and Earth!
Rejoice, for the fame of your beauty is throughout the nations!
Rejoice, for the Lord Himself has clothed you with His own splendor!
Rejoice, for it is the Lord Himself that has made you perfect!
Rejoice, O Most Beautiful Flower of Carmel, Splendor of Heaven, and Fruitful Vine
richly laden with Blossoms Divine!
