Novena to Our Lady
of Mount Carmel 2019

Elegance of heaven,
Sweetness of the earth.
Lovely Throne of Wisdom,
Mary! You gave birth
To God’s Holy One.

Angels throng above you,
Flowers bloom below.
Jesus sits upon your lap,
Graces overflow,
Our healing now begun!

Hand upraised to heaven,
Hand outstretched to bless.
We too blossom ‘round you,
With our pain at rest,
Abandoned to your Son.

Novena Prayer

O most beautiful Flower of Mount Carmel,
Fruitful Vine, Splendor of Heaven,
Blessed Mother of the Son of God,
Immaculate Virgin,
assist me in this my necessity.
O Star of the Sea, help me and show me
herein that you are my Mother.

O Holy Mary, Mother of God, 
Queen of heaven and earth,
I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart
to succor me in this necessity.  
There are none that can withstand your power!  
O help me and show me herein
that you are my Mother.

Our Lady, Queen and Beauty of Carmel,
pray for me and obtain my requests!
Sweet Mother, I place this cause 
in your hands!

Do your good feelings about yourself depend on being liked by other
 Are your happiness and peace dependent of pleasing others?
 Does your fear of rejection determine what you say or do?
 Is it hard to express your feelings when the people you love are not doing
   what you want them to do?
 Do you feel like you give a lot and get little in return?
 Do you freeze up emotionally when you are in conflict?
 Do you feel like you are the only one holding your family together?
 Do you have difficulty asking for what you want?
 Are you overly defensive when your behavior is criticized?
 Is your life miserable because of someone else’s behavior?
 Do you have difficulty saying “No”?
 Do you work or eat compulsively?
 Have you ever thought you would be better off if you didn’t keep giving in?
