Thanks!

“But Father! But Father! Where? How?”

Left side-bar.

I am in a movie theater for some R&R and working on my phone during the commercials. Can you believe it? Commercials! I hate commercials!

“But Father! But Father! Isn’t this….”

Okay. Right. I’ll stop.

    Fr. Z., please pray for those of us who live in Louisiana with the Hurricane set to hit in 4 days. Please pray especially for those who can’t evacuate because of transportation and money issues. Please post asking people for prayers. We are not ready for another hurricane. Katrina and Rita in 2005 weakened our leavees, and the people of New Orleans, Cameron, Lake Charles are not ready to deal with another major storm. We have just finished rebuilding or are still rebuilding from the last storms. Pray for us please.

  2. Samuel, you are in my prayers. I have family all over La. Some of them lost their homes from the last bout.

    Samuel, I will make a point of praying for you and everyone in your area.

  4. Samuel,

    I will be adding special petitions to one of the litanies in the Divine Liturgy, and will place the whole area under the Protections of the Mother of God. May her mantle enfold and protect all of you from any harm.

  5. Our Lady of Prompt Succor is known for protecting, by her intercession, the city of New Orleans during the Great Fire of 1812 . On the Eve of the Battle of New Orleans (Jan 7, 1815) the Ursuline Sisters and the people of New Orleans gathered to again ask the intercession of Our Lady of Prompt Succor for victory.

    On December 31, 1810 the statue was brought to New Orleans from France by Mother St. Michel Gensoul and several postulants came to join the Ursuline nuns in New Orleans. Mother Gensoul was only given permission from her bishop to go to New Orleans after a prayer to Our Lady and permission from the pope.

    O Almighty and Eternal God, Who sees us surrounded by so many dangers and miseries, grant in Your infinite goodness that the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Your Divine Son, may defend us from the evil spirit and protect us against all adversities, that always and with prompt succor she may deliver us from every evil of soul and body, and safely guide us to the kingdom of heaven, through the merits of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.

    Contemplation:
    If our eyes are always on heaven and God, at the end of life we will find ourselves in His Presence.
