Pray with Carmel

Prayer is an essential component of the life and spirituality of Carmel Catholic. In light of the current pandemic, Campus Ministry and the Social Justice Club created "Corsairs Pray." Follow us at @corsairspray on Instagram for prayer led by the student presidents of the Social Justice Club using Instagram Live each night at 8 pm. The prayer for each evening can also be viewed via the link below.
Prayer for Tuesday, April 7 - Tuesday of Holy Week
Let us turn in prayer to the Saviour of all men.
By dying, he destroyed our death and by rising he restored our life.
– Sanctify the people you redeemed by your blood.
Christ, our Redeemer, let us share in your passion by works of penance,
let us attain the glory of your resurrection.
– Sanctify the people you redeemed by your blood.

Grant us the protection of your Mother, the comforter of the afflicted,
help us to extend to others the consolation you have given us.
– Sanctify the people you redeemed by your blood.

Unite the faithful to your passion in times of trouble and distress
and let the power of your salvation shine forth in their lives.
– Sanctify the people you redeemed by your blood.

You humbled yourself even to accepting death, death on a cross;
grant to your servants obedience and patience.
– Sanctify the people you redeemed by your blood.

Share with the dead your bodily glory;
let us rejoice one day with them in the fellowship of the saints.
– Sanctify the people you redeemed by your blood.
Prayer from Evening Prayer of the Liturgy of the Hours
