A Prayer for More Vocations to the Carmelite Monastery of the Holy Spirit in Littleton, Colorado

Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, you who interceded for and watched over the vocations of the Sisters at the Carmelite Monastery of the Holy spirit, please intercede for them again to inspire many women to joyfully answer the call of our Lord to dedicate their lives at the Carmel. 
Bless those who are serving now with courage and perseverance. Grant that many will be inspired by their example and faith.
Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, pray for us.
Amen.

Psalter Week 3 – O.C.D. Missions and Seminarians

A Prayer for Mission Priests and Seminarians

Lord Jesus, you sent out the disciples saying, “..Make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always until the end of the age” (Matt 28:19-20).  
Please be with the OCD Seminarians and Priests who serve in Uganda and Tanzania – may their missions be fruitful and abundantly blessed!  
May they be sustained with energy and mutual cooperation so that their projects will be successful.
May they receive the spiritual insights they need to guide their communities. 
Guard their daily travels, so they are safe and free from distress. 
May they have good health so they can carry out their duties every day with joy.
Amen!

Psalter Week 4 – Seminarians at SJV and RMS

A Prayer for Our Seminarians

Good and Gracious God, we ask you to bless our seminarians and guide them on the path toward priesthood. Strengthen them as they are educated and formed in the duties and responsibilities of the priesthood.  Help them to become faithful servants and leaders in the Church today.  We ask this through Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns now and forever. 

Amen

 

Inspirations from our O.C.D.S. Members

“You are the light of the world.  A city set on a hill cannot be hid.  Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a bushel, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”  Matthew 5:14-16

Prayers and Novenas

We invite you to pray Novena’s and Litanies with our Carmelite family, especially on Feast Day’s of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and Carmelite Saints.   This site will include a page for each Feast Day Novena and Litany.  Downloadable pdf’s are also included, for your convenience.

The word novena is taken from “novem,” the Latin word for nine.  A novena is a nine-day period of private or public prayer to obtain special graces, to implore special favors, or to make special petitions.
