To pray along with the Carmelite Feast days you may consult the Carmelite Proper of the Liturgy Of The Hours and also the Discalced Carmelite Missal, which contains the Proper of Saints and Votive Masses. The Carmelite Proper can be downloaded as a PDF from the Carmel of Canada website. The Discalced Carmelite Missal can be ordered from the Carmelite Book Service, Boars Hill, Oxford OX1 5HB, England. Note that these resources are not the complete Divine Office, but simply a supplement that contains the prayers unique to the feasts of our Carmelite saints and blesseds.
