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 is so awesome, YUM!! Makes me want to read some AA Milne!


This is very cool science. I'm jealous.

Neat Cay! My dad used to have bee hives and the whole process is simply amazing! In fact, right now I have 5 lbs. of bees wax in my closet....yes, in my closet...I'm gonna make candles one day. Another thing I love to make is garlic honey....fill a pint jar half full with peeled cloves of garlic and pour raw honey over them and cover, let mixture sit in a sunny place and give a good shake each day. After a few weeks remove whats left of the garlic pieces and you'll have a delicious mixture. Great on baked or grilled chicken and good for sore throats in the winter. :)

That garlic honey sounds terrific. Thanks for the tip. I'm going to make at least one jar of that to try it out.

What a fascinating post!

This is one to share with my children!


This is awewsome!!!!! What a great experience for the kids! Wish I was there.


This brings back memories of when my Dad had bees! Like you said, the local honey is best for allergies! What a wonderful find! Great science project and you can eat it as well!

Yum! Looks like so much fun too.


Incredible, Cay! Traveling through CA we collected so many different bees from the fields in the grill of our truck. Made me feel a bit guilty too...


Wow, Cay!! This post is incredible! I will be reading it to my boys later today!


How awesome!! We actually use bees for pollinating our cranberries, so if you have any way of transporting them to us in Wisconsin, we'd be happy to use them. Well, since that won't happen, have fun and maybe this will be an annual thing for you. Talking to bee keepers, I've heard that bees like to "come back" to the same place year after year.


Awesome, Cay!

This is soooo cool, Cay! My boys love honey. They eat it practically every day (peanut butter and honey sandwiches, which I never heard of til I moved down here!) Enjoy your liquid gold there!


The change of our climate is, is not natural


I haven't gotten much done , but it's not important. Not much on my mind lately. Today was a total loss, but so it goes.


How neat!!! My daughter has a friend whose family has bee hives. I told my husband and told him & my daughter that someday, when we live in the country, I want some hives. They both quite seriously said "no way!"
