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

| | Comments (0)


It is not against human enemies that we struggle, but against sovereignties and powers
who originate the darkness in this world, the spiritual army of evil, as the Apostle warns
us. Relying on God's armor, signified by your Scapular of Mount Carmel, O Mother of
the Redeemer, we sing:

Rejoice, Most Holy General, commanding us with unfailing spiritual strategy!
Rejoice, Leader in the day of battle, assisting us to hold our ground!
Rejoice, bestower of spiritual resources in our constant struggle with evil!
Rejoice, buckling truth around our waist!
Rejoice, granting us a breastplate of integrity!
Rejoice, putting on us the shoes of spiritual eagerness for the Gospel!
Rejoice, giving us the shield of faith!
Rejoice, defending us against the fiery arrows of the evil one!
Rejoice, placing on us the helmet of salvation!
Rejoice, arming us with the Sword of the Spirit!
Rejoice, empowering us with the Word of God!
Rejoice, inspiring us in the constant invocation of the Name of Jesus!
Rejoice, O Most Beautiful Flower of Carmel, Splendor of Heaven and Fruitful Vine
richly laden with Blossoms Divine!
