'O consuming Fire, Spirit of Love! Come down into me and reproduce in me, as it were, an incarnation of the Word; that I may be to Him an added humanity, wherein He may renew all His mystery!' (St Elizabeth of the Trinity)
This blog is to propagate genuine Catholic devotions in the spirit of Traditional Carmel by providing texts useful for spiritual readings and meditations. "The devil knows that he has lost the soul that perseveringly practices mental prayer" - St Teresa of Avila. "For we preach not ourselves, but Jesus Christ our Lord; and ourselves your servants through Jesus" (2Cor 4:5). Soli Deo honor et gloria. The blog is lovingly dedicated to the Infant Jesus of Prague and under His Patronage
V. Angelus Domini nuntiavit Mariae.
R. Et concepit de Spiritu Sancto.
V. Ecce ancilla Domini,
R. Fiat mihi secundum verbum tuum.
V. Et Verbum caro factum est,
R. Et habitavit in nobis.
V. Ora pro nobis, sancta Dei Genetrix,
R. Ut digni efficiamur promissionibus Christi.
Gratiam tuam, quaesumus,
Domine, mentibus nostris infunde;
ut qui, Angelo nuntiante,
Christi Filii tui incarnationem cognovimus,
per passionem eius et crucem
ad resurrectionis gloriam perducamur.
Per eumdem Christum Dominum nostrum.
