Prayer in ReparationMost Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore Thee profoundly, and I offer Thee the Most Precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifferences by which He is offended. And by the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart and through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg the conversion of poor spinners. Amen.
May Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Most Blessed Sacrament be praised, adored, and loved, with grateful affection, at every moment in all the tabernacles of the world, even to the end of time! O Sacrament Most
Holy! O Sacrament divine! All praise and All thanksgiving be every moment Thine.
The Investiture in the Brown Scapular.
Take this Scapular, it shall be a sign of salvation, a protection in danger and a pledge of peace. Whosoever dies wearing this Scapular shall not suffer eternal fire. Wear it devoutly and perseveringly. It is my garment. To be clothed in it means you are continually thinking of me, and I in turn, am always thinking of you and helping you to secure eternal life. Our Lady of Mount Carmel
P. Lord, hear my prayer. R. And let my cry come unto Thee.
P. The Lord be with you. R. And with your Spirit.
P. Lord Jesus Christ, Savior of the human race, sanctify † by Thy power these
scapulars, which for love of Thee and for love of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, Thy
servants will wear devoutly, so that through the intercession of the same Virgin Mary,
Mother of God, and protected against the evil spirit, they persevere until death in Thy
grace. Thou who livest and reignest world without end. Amen.
The Priest then sprinkles with Holy Water the scapular and the persons being enrolled.
He then invests them, saying:Receive this blessed scapular and beseech the Blessed Virgin that through Her merits, you may wear it without stain. May it defend you against all adversity and accompany you to eternal life. Amen.
After the investiture the priest continues with the prayers:
I, by the power vested in me, admit you to participate in all the spiritual benefits obtained through the mercy of Jesus Christ by the Religious Order of Mount Carmel. In the name of the Father † and of the Son † and of the Holy Ghost. † Amen.May God Almighty, the Creator of Heaven and earth, bless † you, He who has deigned to join you to the Confraternity of the Blessed Virgin of Mount Carmel; we beseech Her to crush the head of the ancient serpent so that you may enter into possession of your eternal heritage through Christ our Lord. Amen.
The priest then sprinkles again with Holy Water the persons enrolled.
Faith, Food and Fun a perfect combination.
