Saint Medard, Patron of Bad Storms:
Saint Medard is the perfect patron saint for the hurricane season. He was a sixth-century bishop, preacher, and missionary, who, as a child, according to legend, was once sheltered from the rain by an eagle hovering over him. His feast day is observed each year on June 8.
Saint Medard, patron saint for protection against bad storms,
we ask you to intercede for us during the storms of our lives as well as the storms in nature.
Protect our families and our homes.
We pray for assistance for the victims of snowstorms, hurricanes,
tornadoes, earthquakes, and other natural disasters,
especially now with the impact from Hurricane Harvey.
Loving God, send in more helpers,
and multiply resources and supplies for the aid of those in need.
Please avert Hurricane Irma from our shores and keep us safe.
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.
Please pray this daily as we continue to move through hurricane season.
Fr. Brett Brannen, Pastor
