As I sit here this afternoon and watch coverage of Hurricane Irma, my thoughts go to all the people who will be affected, including those who are unable to care for themselves. I think about the men and women who reside in nursing homes and those currently in hospitals. I think about people who will lose homes and belongings. I think about the families displaced and currently in shelters. I am reminded that our world can change in an instant.
Will you please join me tonight at 9:00 P.M. Eastern Time in lighting a candle and saying a prayer for those in the path of Hurricane Irma, including those in the islands that were devastated before it hit Florida? This weekend at mass, we were reminded "For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them."
I think we are gathered together through this world of Blogging, even if we are scattered all over the world. Please feel free to share this message, so we can have an even greater number of candles lit, and prayers offered.
Thank you, my friends!
