DAY 3 The Birth (Lk 2: 1-20)
Prayer: Virgin Mary, you who wrap your Jesus in swaddling clothes, teach us to be always small so that we may “be carried in God’s arms”.
Virgin Mother, who wraps your Jesus in swaddling clothes, help us to clothe ourselves with your Son, so that each day we may be a sign of God’s love.
Pause to mention your petition(s) in silence.
Virgin Mary, Splendor of heaven, hold us tight under your mantle. Pray for us
We invite you to quietly meditate with this video of the Carmelite Hymn, “Flower of Carmel” produced by Neil Conlisk, O.Carm and performed by Matthew Gummess, O.Carm.
Please share your prayer intentions in the comments section below. The Carmelites will remember them during the Novena to Our Lady of Mount Carmel.
