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!

Isn't that just like us women? We immediately feel slighted and fume when if we only knew the real reason it might make us laugh instead.

Thank you for this reminder Cay!

(And for the reminder to finish the work I started ages ago. ; )


Lots to think about Cay! Humility is never my strength. ;)


Cay, you made me go check my blogroll. :) I started it with one of my categories on google reader when I moved to Epiphany Springs, then promptly forgot all about it! It is probably only 1/3 of the blogs I read regularly.

Now, my thoughts are, however - do I complete the HUGE blogroll, thus making those few people who notice they are NOT on the blogroll feel even worse, or do I delete the whole thing altogether? I'm thinking #2. I hate making people feel sad. I know that's not good blogging etiquite (sp?? - I can never spell that word!)

Right there in the desert with you, my dear Cay! I need to be better at HAPPY humility.


Wow,you really hit the nail on the head, Cay. The Lord gives us so many opportunities to learn to be humble, doesn't he?


I've been reading about Humilty in the book "Finding Sanctuary - Monastic Steps for Everyday Life." So, reading you post was a great tie in.

Love the pics in your header, btw!

House Prayer

  • (Adapted from Our Lady of the Oaks Retreat House Prayer)
    God our Father, Open our hearts to your Presence. Open our minds to your Guidance. Open our lives to your Love, Through the intercession of Our Lady Bless us, bless our family and our home. 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.
