Collect for the Commemoration of Our Lady of Mount Carmel:
O God, Who hast honored the Order of Carmel with the special title of Thy most Blessed Mother Mary, ever Virgin: mercifully grant, that we who celebrate her memory this day with solemn office, may be shielded by her protection and deserve to come to everlasting joys; Who livest and reignest.
My friend, Br. Ken Geraci, CPM, is undergoing surgery this day. Please pray an Ave on his behalf.
