A Prayer for Christmas

Let your goodness, Lord, appear to us, that we, made in your image, conform ourselves to it. In our own strength we cannot imitate your majesty, power, and wonder; nor is it fitting for us to try. But your mercy reaches from the heavens, through the clouds, to the earth below. You have come to us as a small child, but you have brought us the greatest of all gifts, the gift of eternal love. Caress us with your tiny hands, embrace us with your tiny arms, and pierce our hearts with your soft, sweet cries. Amen. 

— St. Bernard of Clairvaux

Prayer for Hurricane Season

O God, Master of this passing world, hear the humble voices of your children.  The Sea of Galilee obeyed Your Son’s command, when He calmed the stormy waters and delivered the disciples from fear and harm.

During this hurricane season, we turn to You, O loving Lord, for your Mercy is without end.  Spare us from tragedies like those of the past and keep us safe in your loving care.

O Virgin Mother, Star of the Sea, we seek your powerful help.  Plead for us with Your Son that we might be spared from all harm, whether natural or made by human hand, and walk safely in His footsteps until we reach our heavenly home. 

Amen.

Our Lady of Prompt Succor, hasten to help us!
