Prayer of Saint John of the Cross to Our Lady of Mount Carmel:
O Mary, most holy Mother of Carmel, Virgin of virgins, sanctuary of the Blessed Trinity, mirror of angels, assured refuge of sinners! Have compassion on me in my sufferings, listen to my sighs with clemency, and appease the anger of thy Son. Amen.
Today we implore the Virgin of virgins to “appease the anger of thy Son.” St. John of the Cross, who composed the above prayer, lived in the late 15th century. Now, think of how much more Jesus is offended with our world today! Abortion allowed up until birth, rampant contraception and sexual immorality, unnatural same sex unions, gender confusion, domestic violence, atheism, demonic activity, worshiping false gods, and the breakdown of the domestic family, not to mention Catholics receiving Holy Communion in the state of mortal sin. Let us pray this litany, begging Our Lady of Mount Carmel, to ask her Son Jesus, to have mercy on the world.
Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy.

Our Lady of Mount Carmel, glorious Queen of Angels, channel of God’s tenderest mercy to man, refuge and advocate of sinners, with confidence I prostrate myself before thee, beseeching thee to obtain for us a sincere reparation for our sins and the sins of the world (then mention your intentions.) In return I solemnly promise to have recourse to thee in all my trials, sufferings and temptations, and I shall do all in my power to induce others to love and reverence thee and to invoke thee in all their needs. I thank thee for the numberless blessings which I have received from thy mercy and powerful intercession. Continue to be my shield in danger, my guide in life, and my consolation at the hour of death. Amen

I repeat this prayer now in my quiet prayerful humble supplication to my Lord Savior and Redeemer Jesus Christ, and I post it again now in hope it reaches others who surely need it! I can add nothing to this it is perfect genuine and crystalline, and I thank Saint John for the writing of this most humble prayer while in his state of prayerful inspiration it was sent to him through the Holy Ghost from heaven in order to leave this most beautiful prayer for generations until the end. Amen.
Brother in Christ Jesus,
