Prayers for refinery tragedy in CA


#1

My husband works in an oil refinery, and a man disappeared from his post yesterday. Everyone at the refinery, as well as the police and search and rescue teams, spent the day looking for him, and finally found him this morning, drowned in an oil tank which he had somehow fallen into. I didn’t know him, but my husband did. I believe his name was Bob, though I am not certain. Anyway, prayers for him and his family would be appreciated – I’m sure God will know who he is, even if his name isn’t right! It was the sort of tragedy refinery workers and their families (like me) fear.

I am sorry your husband lost a friend in such a tragic way.

May God have mercy and his soul rest in peace,
and may Bill’s family receive the comfort of the Holy Spirit.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners,
now, and at the hour of our death. Amen.

St. Joseph, protector of the Holy Family, take Bill’s family under your protective wing by interceding for them as a loving foster-father, like you did for Mary and Jesus.
