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 had some foresight and checked out some books on fall themes, but experienced the same results when I went back for more selections this week. Quite frustrating!

Cay in La.

I just raided our home bookshelves and found several fall/pumpkin books which we read every year at this time. They are old friends the children love coming back to but we love to meet new friends too. :)

We're still planning a trip to the library today to see if we can find some crumbs on the shelves. :)

Table time is moving very slowly today...must be the we haven't finished up in record time like we usually do.


I am totally addicted to the Pumpkin Spice Latte... Decaf of course, but full of the same number of calories. They are delicious!!


Yes, November is perfectly excellent for pumpkins! I have a number of pumpkin treats slated for November! Thanks for the recipe for Pumpkin Spice Latte ... sound delish! :o) And I just might have to get out and try a Starbucks version tomorrow morning ... in the name of celebrating my favorite season!


Cay, how did you like the latte? I tried one last week and it was *delicious* ... a subtle pumpkin flavor and excellent coffee. :)

Thanks for the link, btw!

I was yummy and, yes, subtle. I fully expected more of a pumpkin flavor with my first sip and was a little surprised how subtle it was. Still good though. ;)

Next trip I plan to get their maple macchiato. Haven't tried that one yet. :)

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.
