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!

Right there with you Sister! I SO understand being tired...and being tired of being tired...and thinking to myself, "How could I have avoided this? Or that? Or this other thing?"

Aren't we blessed to find Him waiting for us, with His arms wide open, beckoning us to come and find rest. Sweet rest in His loving arms.

Be not dismayed my friend, our Redeemer lives and is mindful of our weariness. And you know what, He's just waiting to sustain us as He said He would.

Love you!


Oh I know how you feel...yesterday I kept saying to myself I am tired of this and tired of that when I realized I AM TIRED!! So for the rest of the summer I am going to focus on rest, sleep and more time at Our Lord's feet. Hopefully I will be rested (enough) to be more joyful and playful with the kids they do grow so fast!

God bless you!

I always call it the *Sandwich Syndrome*. We're stuck between our children, and their lives, and our parents, and their aging lives. We're tired because we are lunchmeat!

It's truly a difficult place to be. I lifted you specifically in prayer today, Cay.

Dropping in to say hi and let you know that I am praying for you and your loved ones. Our summer has been difficult and tiring as well. It has brought new meaning to the phrase "vale of tears." You are not alone--much love to you.
