Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Novena (Begins July 7)

I once had a priest tell me that if you miss a day on a Novena to just do two days together and leave it in God's hands. 

This is coming late in the day, so I am putting up both the first day (July 7) and second day.

For the remaining days, I recommend going to EWTN and bookmarking the Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Novena. They have it layed out conveniently for each day, leading up to the feast day, July 16.

First Day

O Beautiful Flower of Carmel, most fruitful vine, splendor of heaven, holy and singular, who brought forth the Son of God, still ever remaining a pure virgin, assist us in our necessity! O Star of the Sea, help and protect us! Show us that you are our Mother!
(pause and mention petitions)

Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be

Our Lady of Mount Carmel, pray for us.

Second Day

Most Holy Mary, Our Mother, in your great love for us you gave us the Holy Scapular of Mount Carmel, having heard the prayers of your chosen son Saint Simon Stock. Help us now to wear it faithfully and with devotion. May it be a sign to us of our desire to grow in holiness.
(pause and mention petitions)

Say: Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be

Our Lady of Mount Carmel, pray for us.

I've also experienced missing a day or two in my novena. Felt so guilty though but I just had to do two days together, I think He would understand as long as it comes from the heart. :)
