O most beautiful flower of Mount Carmel, fruitful vine, splendor of heaven, blessed Mother of the Son of God, immaculate Virgin, assist me in this my necessity.

O Star of the sea, help me and show me herein that you are my mother.

O Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of heaven and earth, I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart, to succor me in this necessity: there are none that can withstand your power.

O show me herein that you are my mother.

Our Lady Queen and Beauty of Carmel, pray for me and obtain my requests.

Sweet Mother, I place this cause in your hands. Amen.
