Prayer for victims of Hurricane Harvey

posted Sep 1, 2017, 5:52 AM by Dianne Gavin

In his USCCB statement, Cardinal DiNardo, the Archbishop of Galveston-Houston, called all Catholics and people of good will to offer their prayers, solidarity and support to victims and survivors of Hurricane Harvey:

May God, the Lord of mercy and compassion,
protect all who are still in danger,
and bring safety to those who are missing.

May He care in a special way for those who were already homeless,
or without support and resources, before the disaster.

We pray in thanksgiving for the first responders
who are risking their lives to save others at this very moment.

We include in our intentions the everyday heroes
reaching out to help their neighbors in need,
those who, like the Good Samaritan,
cannot walk by a person in need without offering their hand in aid.
