Carmelite Litany

Note: I composed the following Litany based upon the terms explained in this article by The Adoremus Bulletin. It should be appropriate for liturgical use, if so desired, and most certainly for private use. To be included in liturgical use, the person must at least be beatified. I have included two famous but not yet beatified Carmelites, for private devotion, and put their names in red. I included saints who were not Carmelites but closely affiliated with the Order and put their names in Navy blue. I’m not sure if the invocation to the Infant Jesus is appropriate for public devotion, so I marked that in green. Traditionally, the saints are only invoked by Bl or St. and first name, unless the last name or “of X” part is needed for clarification. Therefore, the Saint’s distinguishing title is put in brackets, per the explanation in the above article.
