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!

That was a beautiful post Cay. I have a very special devotion to Venerable Zelie Martin, and go to her often asking for the graces to live this hidden life! Thanks for your thoughts. God Bless.

Alice Gunther

Interesting, beautiful, and infinitely important! Thank you, Cay!!!


Wonderful post, Cay.

Elizabeth Foss

I wish I could hear it. Something tells me it has an even more inspirational quality when spoken in a gentle Southern accent. Thanks for sharing!

Jenn Miller

So beautiful and inspiring, Cay. Hits close to home.

BTW, the links for the document aren't working.


This definitely spoke to me today, Cay. Thank you for sharing!

Oh Cay! Thank you...I feel as if a load has been lifted off my back. Getting back from a long hard trip had me feeling a little overwhelmed today. This is just what I needed...the suitcases can really wait one more day to be unpacked.


Thank you so much for such a beautiful post!

Cay in La.

Thank you for all the nice compliments.

I'm a great admirer of Venerable Zelie Martin.

This talk can be ordered through this link:

and I'll try to fix the links when I get back next week. No time right now to figure out what I did wrong.

Thanks again, everyone. You ladies are wonderful!!!

Cay, this is such a beautiful post! It gives me great comfort to remember that my smallness is enough. Thank you!


This is a great post! And yes, I was one person who nodded my head to everything - I too feel I don't do anything well - so this post/talk really spoke to me! Now how to put it into practice...

Thank you for sharing it with us all.


Dear Cay,

Thank you for your post about the Venerable Zelie Martin. Perhaps you'd like to visit, a site I've created to educate persons about St. Therese which also has a lot of information about her mother and her father.

with all good wishes,

Maureen O'Riordan
