July – Our Lady of Divine Providence

My little book, “Favorite Prayers to Our Lady”, by Anthony M. Buono, has prayers to Mary for each month of the year and each day of the week.  Each month and day has its own theme.  This is the prayer for July, dedicated to Our Lady of Divine Providence:

Immaculate Virgin and Mother of Divine Providence,
keep my soul with the fullness of your grace.
Govern my life
and direct it in the way of virtue,
that I may fulfill the Divine Will.
Obtain for me
the pardon and remission of all my sins.
Be my refuge, my protection, my defense, and my guide
in my pilgrimage through the world.
Comfort me in the midst of trials.
Bring me safe through every danger.
Give me your sure protection in the storms of affliction.

renew my heart spiritually,
that it may become a holy dwelling place
for your Divine Son Jesus.
Keep far from me every kind of sin,
negligence, carelessness, cowardice, and human respect.
You are the Mother of Providence
and the Virgin of pardon.
You are my hope on earth.
Grant that I may have you as my Mother
in the glory of heaven.

I will be away for a while, so I will close the comments on this site until I come back. Wishing you all a safe and peaceful rest of the month, and I’ll see you in August!

Feastday of Our Lady of Mount Carmel


Brown Scapular

     Do you know:

  • what Our Lady has promised to those who are wearing the Brown Scapular at the moment of their death?
  • what Mother Mary has promised to those who are enrolled in the Confraternity of the Brown Scapular?
  • how to be clothed in the Blessed Virgin’s virtue?
  • how to be protected by Our Lady?
  • Father Angelo tells us in his homily, and it is well worth listening.  Then we can go beyond listening to taking action, and beyond taking action to living this devotion.  Our well-being on earth and the eternal life of our souls can truly be entrusted to Our Lady of Mount Carmel.
