You have given us Mary as our Mother
and, through the Order of Carmel,
we learn to call her sister.
May we imitate her goodness and faith
and be ever joyful in the wonderful things
You have done for us.
May Mary watch over and protect us
on our pilgrim way to Your holy mountain,
Christ the Lord.
We make our prayer through the same
Christ Our Lord.
(Make your special request now.)
Our Father…, Hail Mary…, Glory be…
– Prayer by the Carmelite Friars
