All Carmelite Souls

November 15: As the Commemoration for All Souls.

On this day the Order remembers in prayer all the members of the Carmelite Family who have died.


Prayer
Lord,
you are the glory of those who serve you.
Look lovingly on our departed brothers and sisters,
united in following Christ and his Mother
by the waters of baptism and the bonds of Carmel.
In your mercy grant them everlasting sight of you
their Creator and Redeemer.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
