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!

Fascinating! Maybe they are eating it in preparation for a move? This is really cool!I hope you give frequent updates because you have got me curious!


They could be recycling it into the new home. I do know the best way to clean bee keeping equipment is to leave it out by the bee hives. They will do a better job of cleaning up that honey than any human can!

"They will do a better job of cleaning up that honey than any human can!"


I can believe that! They're working their way around the comb and leaving patches of it bleach white.


Perhaps they're preparing the comb for another re-fill of'll have your own honey-making machine in your backyard:)

Extremely interesting!

This is so great, keep us updated!


If the bees that keep the honey cool are no longer there the honey will melt.


This is really interesting. It's so neat to watch this from afar.


That's an interesting bee story! Is the comb empty? It looks like it. If so, they may have gorged themselves on honey, preparing to swarm. I asked my beekeeping mentor what his thoughts were -- I am interested to see what he says!


Beekeeping mentor says:

All comb is bleach white when it is first formed. It darkens and yellows as the bees walk on it and it ages. The color of the honey is dependent on the flowers that the nectar came from.

Thank you for educating us further, FlyinC.

That is fascinating. Perhaps we didn't see it at first as it was a piece in back of the piece we broke off.
