Celebrating Labor Day

Work thus belongs to the vocation of every person; indeed, man expresses and fulfills himself by working.

At the same time, work has a "social" dimension through its intimate relationship not only to the family, but also to the common good.

Prayer For Protection From Storms

God our Father, Creator of the Universe and Lord over all creation, we humbly stand before you as your children in thanksgiving for your loving care and protection. We ask that you keep us safe from all hurricanes which may threaten us in the coming seasons.

Protect us from all fear and anxiety of storms and give us an ardent trust and hope in your love and mercy. You alone have the power to command the sea, the wind and the rain. You alone bring peace, calm, and safety. Father, we thank you in advance for you are our only refuge. We ask this through Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.

Amen.
