Please Pray as Massive Hurricane & Super Typhoon Strike on Feast of Exaltation of the Holy Cross

by Fr Richard Heilman | September 13, 2018 8:12 AM

Both Hurricane Florence[1] & Super Typhoon Mangkhut[2] are set to strike on the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross.

I am adding fasting on water only to my prayers, until these storms no longer pose a serious threat.

Please consider some form of penance to amplify your prayers during this time.

Blessing Against Storms from the Pieta Prayer Book
(where you see the cross, make the Sign of the Cross)

Jesus Christ a King of Glory has come in Peace. + God became man, + and the Word was made flesh. + Christ was born of a virgin. + Christ suffered. + Christ was crucified. + Christ died. + Christ rose from the dead. + Christ ascended into Heaven. + Christ conquers. + Christ reigns. + Christ orders. + May Christ protect us from all storms and lightning. + Christ went through their midst in Peace, + and the Word was made Flesh. + Christ is with us with Mary. + Flee you enemy spirits because the Lion of the Generation of Juda, the Root of David, has won. + Holy God! + Holy Powerful God ! + Holy Immortal God! + Have mercy on us. Amen!
