Mt Carmel High School

 

 

The prophet Elijah is known for his
unwavering commitment to fighting
for the worship of one true God. He
defended God's law on Mount Carmel,
and afterwards was given on Mount
Horeb an intimate experience of the
living God. Elijah became the founder
of the Carmelite Order. St. Elijah’s
feast day is July 20th.

 

 

 

 

Holy Prophet of God Elijah, Leader and Father of Carmelites, intercede for us and for the salvation
of all.

V: Pray for us, O holy Father Elijah.
R: That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray.
Grant, we beseech You, O Almighty God, that we who believe that the Blessed Elijah Your Prophet and our Father was wonderfully carried
up in a fiery chariot, may by his intercession be raised to the desire of heavenly things and rejoice in the society of Your saints. We ask this
through Christ our Lord. Amen.
