Prayers For All in the Path of Hurricane Sandy

In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, a ferocious storm that ravaged both the Carribean and the eastern seaboard of the United States, we invite you to join us in hopeful prayer for a rapid recovery both here and abroad.

This deadly storm reminds us that we are indeed one human family, as we together suffered loss of life and property. We are all subject to disaster and we are all united in the knowledge and faith that God is at work in all of our lives, through times of cataclysm and joy.

Our hearts go out to all those in the path of Hurricane Sandy. We lift them up in prayer and ask our heavenly Father to use this time to teach us, nurture us, and grant us wisdom and compassion to respond to the needs of our brothers and sisters, and to heal our own hurts as we pick up and continue in his word.

CRS is responding to needs in the Caribbean with relief supplies while staff assesses damage and recommends the most effective way forward. You are invited to go here to help with aid to the Caribbean.

In the U.S., our sister organization, Catholic Charities, responds to needs here at home. If you wish to assist in that mission, please visit them here.

As always, thank you for your prayers. You encourage us and those we serve in your name overseas.
