Heavenly Father, Our Lady of Mount Carmel lived a life of piety and contemplation in nearby Nazareth. Mount Carmel is where Elijah proved that You are greater than pagans gods. Later, the Carmelites became a religious order devoted to contemplative prayer under her protection, and when its general, Saint Simon Stock, prayed for her help, she appeared to him and showed him a scapular for his order to wear. She said: “It is the sign of salvation, a safeguard in dangers, a pledge of peace and of the covenant.” I ask Our Lady of Mount Carmel to pray for my protection, help me to live out my salvation, and fill my life with Your peace. Blessed Mother, pray for me. Amen.
