Novena Prayer

(December 16th to 24th inclusive) 

O Christ, our Lord and King, come for the sake of your Church, your people,

that by her strength and unity of love she may proclaim to all the world the glory and joy of your kingdom. 

In the bond of union, draw mankind to your reign of love, your reign of gentleness, of mercy and of truth.

Help each of us to build your kingdom, to prepare our hearts in love as your Christmas light shines clear.

Sweet Infant Jesus, bless us.


Dear Friends of Carmel,

We invite you to join us in your home, by praying for nine days, the Novena to the Infant Jesus. We have all of your intentions in our hearts in a special way each day, when praying the novena at the end of Mass.

As we prepare for Christmas this Advent season and gaze upon the Nativity scene, may we be inspired by those we see there, adoring the new born Babe, the Savior of the World.

May we be like them and come to Him with humility and simplicity of soul.  Thus our minds and hearts will be open to receive His truth, goodness and love.  Let us pray that by His grace we may share these gifts with others.

We take the opportunity to thank those who sent the names of their beloved faithful departed for the month of November.

Your humble sisters and servants in Jesus, Mary and Joseph, The Carmelite Nuns.
