Prayers for those in the path of Ike

It seems that hurricane Ike is really revved up. 

It will slam the area around Galveston, already wind-swept, and much of the rest of the coast, since it is so huge.

These folks need your prayers.

  1. Our Lady of Prompt Succor, ora pro nobis !!!

  2. We are in Dallas and they are saying that when the storm gets here after lunch tomorrow that it might still be a category 1 hurricane.

    Please remember all those who decided to stay in Galveston; it is likely they will not make it. I sure wish they had left.

    Thanks for posting. We all are getting hit bad, texas and Louisiana. Here in Lake Charles, the wind is howling, knocking ovr trees and such, but I feel bad for those getting the eye. Flooding is starting to get bad too. Pray for us Fr. Z, especially Cameron. They are still rebulding. Fr. Joseph McGrath is still rebuilding his Cathedral like church. It is nearing completion with Ike flooding Cameron out. Fr Nathan Long was forced to cancel his very first Solemn High Mass. Mary, Meditrix of all Grace, ora pro nobis.

    The Cathedral Basilica of St. Mary ( was the first Catholic Cathedral in Texas,and survived the 1900 Galveston Hurricane,but as of a few years ago it was in disrepair…it will be interesting to see how well it weathers this storm,and whether the Archdiocese,having just opened the new Co-Cathedral in Houston,will restore it.

    Here in College Station, TX, we are about 40 minutes away from slamming up against the wall. I keep checking the radar online, and that big wall of rain and wind is creeping closer. 12:00 midnight is when it starts for us.

    It’s eerie when I looked outside before sundown and saw that ominous wall of clouds in the sky. I don’t know what’s in store this evening. It should be all downhill by tomorrow night, but that seems so far away.

    Here’s the last view by daylight I saw of the approaching Ike…

    Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Pray for Us.
