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!

WOW I think that is awesome Cay!! Thanks for the photos, and the milk jug helmet is priceless!


Cay, I hardly know where to start! First, thank you for sharing your day with us - what a beautiful tradition to share with your children. I wish my group did something like that. Secondly, your humor and perspective is so warm and welcome. This whole post just makes me smile - inside and out!

Have a most blessed Lent my dear friend!


That was incredible. What a way to help the children really understand what happened.

You do have a great sense of humor.

Beautiful, Cay!
Was this done at the retreat center in Moss Bluff? It looks familiar...

Cay in La.

Yes, it was. I almost wrote to you to come join us but didn't think of it till yesterday morning. :O A little bit late.

Our group is typical of hsers, I'm afraid. We do everything last minute. LOL We were told Wed. morning to be at the library Wed. afternoon for rehearsal. Production was Friday. We basically threw everything in God's hands and told Him to do with it what He willed. :)

We might do it again. I'm not sure. If we do, I'll let you know earlier in the week.

God Bless! Have a beautiful weekend.


I love the pictures and the great narration -- thanks Cay!


What an incredible job they did.

marcie melancon

That would be awesome. We would love to come! I thought I recognized that boardwalk.............

Dear Cay, I LOVE this post! Delightful! And your narration of the backstage happenings made me laugh. Real life with little ones is rarely unaccompanied by adventure!
