O Mary, Queen and Mother of Carmel, I come today to consecrate myself to Thee, for my whole life is but a small return for the many graces and blessings that have come from God to me through Thy hands. Since Thou regardest with an eye of special kindness those who wear Thy Scapular, I implore Thee to strengthen my weakness with Thy power, to enlighten the darkness of my mind with Thy wisdom, to increase in me faith, hope and charity that I may render, day by day, my debt of humble homage to Thee.

May Thy Scapular keep Thine eyes of mercy turned towards me and bring me Thy special protection in the daily struggle to be faithful to Thy Divine Son and to Thee. May it separate me from all that is sinful in life and remind me constantly of my duty to behold Thee and clothe myself with Thy virtues.

From henceforth, I shall strive to live in the sweet companionship of Thy spirit, to offer all to Jesus through Thee, and to make my life the mirror of Thy humility, charity, patience, meekness, and prayerfulness.
O dearest Mother, support me, by Thy never-failing love that I, an unworthy sinner, may come one day to exchange Thy Scapular for the wedding Garment of heaven and dwell with Thee and the Saints of Carmel in the Kingdom of Thy Son. Amen.
