Fire in Charleston, SC -- 9 dead, please pray


#1

There was a massive fire in Charleston, SC last night and 9 firefighters lost their lives trying to contain the blaze. They managed to contain the fire enough so that it did not spread to the neighboring subdivision of homes, nor did it spread to the adjacent gas station. The roof of the building caved in; 9 died, 2 were seriously injured.

Pray for their souls. Pray for the families.

Pray for their Catholic chaplain who said Holy Mass for them this morning, after a full night’s work with his brother firefighters, with a full day’s work ahead visiting their families to ascertain their needs at this time.

Our Father in Heaven
Holy be Your Name
Your Kingdom come
Your Will be done
On earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our sins
As we forgive those who sin against us
Do not bring us to the test
But deliver us from evil.
Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace!
The Lord is with you
Blessed are you among women
And Blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.

Pray for us sinners
Now and at the hour of our death.

Glory be to the Father,
And to the Son,

As it was in the beginning
Is now and ever shall be
World without end.
