Pray for California

Please pray for all those affected by the fires in California. So many people have been made homeless by these horrible fires. Pray, too, for the fire fighters and rescue workers.

Saint Florian was a third century Roman officer, who served in Austria and who was said to have put out a fire in a town by throwing just one bucket of water on it. After being ordered to execute a group of Christians, he refused and professed his own faith. He was cruelly martyred by being scourged, half-flayed alive, set on fire, and thrown into the river Enns.

Oh, Saint Florian, beg Our Lord to intervene in the fires that are raging in California, and draw all people there under the protective mantle of Our Lady.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
