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!

I think everyone is running out and trying to get pictures tonight!

JoAnna

We saw it too but I couldn't get a good shot of it. Thanks!

Kalona

I missed in real life, so thank you for the beautiful picture!

I guess it's not surprising that it's upside down—given we had it the right way up:-) http://www.genialhearth.com/2008/12/01/moonface/

Fe,
Wow! that is neat. Where, if you don't mind me asking, are you located?

Joann,
All my camera shots turned out as duds. When I go to a night setting, the lights blur. My son has a newer, better camera. And a tripod. :)

Cay,

What a beautiful shot. Thanks for sharing.

On a side note- I am trying to do my part in promoting children's literacy. Please stop in at my blog for a look at some great children's books.

Happy Reading!

Great photo! Anyone upset about missing it last night can look out there right now. I tried to get a shot of it, but my camera just wouldn't do it.

Fe is in Australia so southern hemisphere - so they had it as the right-side up smiley face. You should check out Aussie Annie's blog, too. We couldn't see it last night due to clouds - but tonight we could though it was further apart.

Fe

Mary M. is correct, I'm in Australia, on the west coast.

So often when noteworthy sky things are around, they're 'optimised' for the northern hemisphere, so this was a nice change... *grin*

Jennifer

That is a terrific shot!

House Prayer

  • (Adapted from Our Lady of the Oaks Retreat House Prayer)
    God our Father, Open our hearts to your Presence. Open our minds to your Guidance. Open our lives to your Love, Through the intercession of Our Lady Bless us, bless our family and our home. Make us an instrument of your peace And a sign of your presence. Unite us to your Son, Jesus, in such a way That all who see and know us may see and know Jesus. By our unity to Him on Earth, Unite us to Him Forever in Heaven. With faith and confidence We ask this in the Name of Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord. Amen.
