Carmelite Devotions

Carmelite Devotions and prayers for the special feasts of The Liturgical Year was compiled by a Carmelite Tertiary, and published in 1956 by the Discalced Carmelite Nuns of Milwaukee, USA.

These devotions and prayers include the Brown Scapular, devotion to the Infant Jesus, the Gospel of the Holy Name, the Holy Face devotion, the Brigittine rosary and prayers to St. Joseph, St. Elias and St. Albert, as well as prayers composed by St. Teresa of Avila, St. Therese of Liseaux and Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity, to name just a few.

There are novenas for the principal feasts of Carmel and the Liturgical Year, including those of the Immaculate Conception, the Christmas novena to the Infant Jesus, a novena in honour of the Holy Name and many others. Plus the history of the veneration of Maria Gratiae or Our Lady of Grace or the Bowed Head, and Maria S.S. Del Carmine Detta Della Bruna, which is believed to be the first painting of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, are included.

It is therefore hoped that these precious prayers and devotions will serve as a comfort and consolation to the reader, and lead to a greater appreciation of the blessings and graces that have bestowed on the Carmelite Order through the loving intercession of our Patroness, the Blessed Virgin Mary who is Queen and Beauty of Carmel.
