Praying for Matthew Karol

Prayer During Hurricane Season

  • Prayer for Hurricane Season
    O God, Master of this passing world, hear the humble voices of your children. The Sea of Galilee obeyed your order and returned to its former quietude; you are still the Master of land and sea. We live in the shadow of a danger over which we have no control. The Gulf, like a provoked and angry giant, can awake from its seeming lethargy, overstep its conventional boundaries, invade our land and spread chaos and disaster. During this hurricane season, we turn to You, O loving Father. Spare us from past tragedies whose memories are still so vivid and whose wounds seem to refuse to heal with the passing of time. O Virgin, Star of the Sea, Our Beloved Mother, we ask you to plead with your Son in our behalf, so that spared from the calamities common to this area and animated with a true spirit of gratitude, we will walk in the footsteps of your Divine Son to reach the heavenly Jerusalem where a storm-less eternity awaits us. Amen. Originally dedicated to the victims of Hurricane Audrey in 1957. - Fr. Al Volpe, Cameron Parish, LA

Prayer to End Abortion

  • Prayer to End Abortion
    Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life, And for the lives of all my brothers and sisters. I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion, Yet I rejoice that you have conquered death by the Resurrection of Your Son. I am ready to do my part in ending abortion. Today I commit myself Never to be silent, Never to be passive, Never to be forgetful of the unborn. I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement, And never to stop defending life Until all my brothers and sisters are protected, And our nation once again becomes A nation with liberty and justice Not just for some, but for all, Through Christ our Lord. Amen!

Cindy Lou

Is it Anne of Green Gables?

Alice Gunther

Cay, we just began re-reading Betsy-Tacy tonight. That house looks exactly like Tacy's house, so that'll be my guess.

(I know it can't be Green Gables, because I've been there!) This is such a fun idea.

>>(I know it can't be Green Gables, because I've been there!)

Cindy Lou, when I wrote this, I hadn't seen your guess (we posted almost simultaneously)--I was just musing about possible responses. It's been about twenty years since my Green Gables visit, so my recollection could be faulty!

Maureen

Betsy-Tacy?

Melissa Markham

My guess is Anne of Green Gables.

Agnes

Is it one of the houses on Klickatat Street? "Peggy" and I both love Beverly Cleary. :-)

Kristen

I'm just musing too, but I'm guessing since it's a photo that it must be a 'real' literary character. So I'm guessing it might be one of the Little House homes, just to be different. Although I like the Betsy-Tacy guess too.

Mary Ellen Barrett

My first guess was Betsy-Tacy too.

Nancy C. Brown

I'm with Kristen, my first thought was a house Laura Ingalls Wilder might have lived in at some point in her life?

Sylvia

Wilder house in DeSmet?

frances

I think it's one of the "little House" houses from the Laura Ingalls Wilder series.

Nancy P.

Tacy's house on Hill Street, in Betsy-Tacy.
