Hurricane Sandy

Breezy Point, NYC - Hurricane Sandy, October 2012
Our hearts and prayers are with the folks up and down the Eastern seaboard who suffered loss of life and so very much damage from Hurricane Sandy over the past several days.  The emergency and rescue workers are our heroes.

"Do not look forward to what might happen tomorrow.  The same everlasting Father who cares for you today will take care of you tomorrow and every day.  Either He will shield you from suffering or he will give you unfailing strength to bear it."
(St. Francis de Sales)

O God, to whose commands all the elements give obedience, we humbly entreat you, that the stilling of fearsome storms may turn a powerful menace into an occasion for us to praise you. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.  Amen. (from the Roman Missal)

May Our Lady enfold you in her mantle.  Please be assured of our prayers!
