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!

Oh my your garden is so advanced. Im still nursing seedlings indoors. We had a frsot this morning so there is no way we are ready to plant here in Oregon.

Could that big leaf plant be a zucchinni? Thats sorta what their leaves look like anyway.

Your garden looks great. Thanks for sharing. I love gardening posts.


Wow! It looks great! You're quite a bit ahead of us. I hope to post some of our garden picts on my blog soon now that I finally got another battery charger for the digital camera (grr-r-r-rr-- it was lost). I'll ask my dad what he suggests for your melons. He grows them by the truckload for wholesale in the summer...

I'm impressed with the veggies and jealous of your mayhaws! I planted two mayhaw trees when we first moved here, and nothing much has happened with them. I'm not even sure they've grown. They certainly haven't shown signs of producing fruit. And I ADORE mayhaw jelly! If you have any surplus, let me know. . .


We have two mayhaw trees. They give a decent crop. It'd be fun to have you and the children come for a visit. We can jelly together and make a day of it. :-)

That mystery plant looks like it is in the eggplant family :)
Lovely garden, mine is no where near the planting stage-late frost and slow gardener. ha.
Funny about those little carrots. When the dk were little I often found carrots that had been replaced (!) after they pulled them, only to find they were not big enough to eat. Of course, they wouldn't grow anymore either....a definite learning moment ;)


Lovely garden, Cay! Ours is just getting started.
