Novena for All Carmelite Saints–Day 2

Twice a day, Carmelites pray for vocations to the Order of Carmel. As you pray this novena with us, please join us in praying for young men and women to respond generously to this call.

Be still and allow yourself to be in the presence of God, who is always available to help us.
Remember: ”For God all things are possible.”
Repeat three times. Exhale, letting go of all doubt you feel.
Breathe in and recall that God will never leave your side.
Read the short prayer about the saint slowly
Let every line wash over you.
What is speaking to you in these lines?
