With the threat of bad weather related to Hurricane Joaquin, we pray for all those affected.
Here is a prayer that you can use for this and other occasions. It is a prayer for the intercession of Saint Medard, a sixth-century bishop, preacher, and missionary (Memorial: June 8). He is the patron saint for protection from storms.
Lord Jesus Christ, Saint Medard served as a bishop during very difficult times. His long life of spiritual leadership created a tremendous impression on the people. Because of his patronage against bad weather, we ask him to intercede during the storms of life as well as the storms in nature. Protect us and our homes. Lord, help the victims of hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes and other natural disasters. Send more helpers and multiply the supplies that are needed for their aid. You calmed the storm on the Sea of Galilee; deliver us from the storms that are raging around us now.
Saint Medard, pray for us. Amen.
