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!

A Prayer for Lent

Lord, Holy Father, show us what kind of man it is who is hanging for our sakes on the cross, whose suffering causes the rocks themselves to crack and crumble with compassion, whose death brings the dead back to life. Let my heart crack and crumble at the sight of him. Let my soul break apart with compassion for his suffering. Let it be shattered with grief at my sins for which he dies. And finally let is be softened with devoted love for him.
Amen.

—St. Bonaventure
