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!

Lovely, Cay. My heart just sighed seeing your azaleas.

We're enjoying our springtime blossoming, and I'm making a concerted effort to go outside and enjoy.


Lovely pictures! Makes me want to go take some today myself...well, if it wasn't pouring down rain. :) Spring isn't quite as far along here in Arkansas, but it is definitely here! And I have 2 dogwoods coming, so I am quite envious of yours. :)


Wow. Great post! We have the exact same little flowers popping up all over. I love the clover flower - it is so humble, yet so beautiful. I loved your St. Therese quote.


Lovely pictures, Cay! I miss the dandelions and I hadn't even realized we don't have them in the Keys till I saw your photos.


I enjoyed the Springtime Nature Walk with you today, Cay, but now I'm sneezing my head off! The oak pollen really got to me! But the time spent at your place with you and your family was definitely worth it! Can't wait til next time!

Oh Cay! What a wonderful walk. I could almost smell that spring air. I love dogwoods. Like snowflakes suspended in air.

Our spring is just in it's infancy,crocus and the promise of forsythias and daffodils. I call it the yellow period. Up north, we don't get azaleas until mid-May! I really enjoyed a little early spring, thanks!


It was cold and windy here in Texas today, but I sure enjoyed my walk through your yard. Thank you for sharing.
