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!

Dear Cay, Thank you so much for doing this study. It comes at the perfect time for us as we are actually starting our first Shakespeare "play" (actually in prose, though) today! This will be a great help to me in making our study more useful and fun. (BTW, I just received my copy of PPC last week and found it very inspiring. After reading it I logged into the library's system and reserved several of your recommendations for the Jan/Feb Children's Hour. What a great list!)

I didn't know co-op was starting, so we will follow along with your online study! Thanks for doing this.

I am so excited about this, Cay! Thank you!


Thanks for this, Cay! I will be sharing with members of our co-op; we are studying the middle ages this year and Shakespeare is at the end of our year (in May).

I'd like to jump in now and I know others will, too.

One neat newer resource on Shakespeare is a series called ... "for Kids." We have Twelfth Night for Kids and Shakespeare for Kids. I think they are really well done and worth exploring.



This was on my list of "put together this year", Cay. You just saved me a ton of anguish and work. I am very very grateful. Thanks and God bless!


Cay - Just found your posts on Shakespeare 101 as I'm putting my year and plans together. What a help! Thanks much.

Make us an instrument of your peace And a sign of your presence. Unite us to your Son, Jesus, in such a way That all who see and know us may see and know Jesus. By our unity to Him on Earth, Unite us to Him Forever in Heaven. With faith and confidence We ask this in the Name of Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord. Amen.
