Our Lady of Mt Carmel

I just finished this painting today to honor Our Lady of Mt Carmel and to have it ready for her feast day on July 16th.    I have been praying novenas to her, at all different times of the year, and have received many answers to my prayers.  She never fails me.    Here is the prayer that I have been saying.

O most beautiful flower of Mt Carmel, fruitful vine, splendor of Heaven,  Blessed Mother of the Son of God, Immaculate Virgin, assist me in this my necessity.   (Mention your need).

O Star of the Sea, help me and show me herein you are my mother.

O holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth, I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart to succor me in this necessity.   There are none that can stand your power.   O show me herein you are my mother.

O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee. (say three times)

Sweet Mother, I place this cause in your hands. (say three times)   Amen

Our Lady of La Salette

"Come near my children, do not be afraid, I am here to tell you the good news."

These were Mary's first words to two children when she appeared at La Salette in the French Alps on September 19, 1846.
