Please pray for the Archdiocese of Chicago to be strong as our cathedral had a fire today

Dear St. Florian, St. Michael and St. George, help and guide the firefighters who are battling the blaze in our Holy Name Cathedral this mornng. Protect all from injuries and help our diocese during the rebuilding process. We ask all these prayers through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Praying! I have attended Mass many times at the Cathedral when visiting Chicago. I pray that the damages will not be too serious.

Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the Fruit of Thy Womb,
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.

May God somehow bring blessings out of this. May God bless your Archdiocese

Praying for your Archdiocese.May the light of God surround you;
The love of God enfold you;
The power of God protect you;
The presence of God watch over you;
May you realize, wherever You are, God is!

Remember a building is not a Church.
