Our Lady of Prompt Succor for Hurricane Protection

Our Lady of Prompt Succor protected New Orleans during the Great Fire of 1812, and again during the Battle of New Orleans in 1815. She is the patroness of both the City of New Orleans and the State of Louisiana. Today she is prayed to for protection against hurricanes. Hurricane season in the Atlantic Basin runs from June 1 to November 30. In the eastern Pacific, the season began on May 15 and ends November 30. Please join in prayer with all who are threatened by hurricanes.

Image below: Dedicated by Archbishop Schulte on May 18, 1997, this seventy-seven-square-foot mosaic by Professor Sergio Papucci of Florence Italy, is on the site of the Almonester Chapel where the nuns prayed before the statue of Our Lady of Prompt Succor. It depicts a scene from the Battle of New Orleans.

Our Lady of Prompt Succor, ever Virgin Mother of Jesus Christ our Lord and God, you are most powerful against the enemy of our salvation. The divine promise of a Redeemer was announced right after the sin of our first parents; and you, through your Divine Son, crushed the serpent’s head. Hasten, then, to our help and deliver us from the deceits of satan. Intercede for us with Jesus that we may always accept God’s graces and be found faithful to Him in our particular states of life. As you once saved our beloved City from ravaging flames and our Country from an invading army, have pity on us and obtain for us protection from hurricanes and all other disasters. (silent pause for individual petitions). Assist us in the many trials which beset our path through life. Watch over the Church and the Pope as they uphold with total fidelity the purity of faith and morals against unremitting opposition. Be to us truly Our Lady of Prompt Succor now and especially at the hour of our death, that we may gain everlasting life through the merits of Jesus Christ Who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.

Our Lady of Prompt Succor, hasten to help us. (Three times)

Spread the love

    Dear Blessed Lady of Prompt Succor, please protect Florida from Hurricane Matthew. Keep us from harm and destruction of this hurricane. Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known, that any one who fled to thy protection, implored they help or sought they intercession, was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence I fly onto thee, O virgin of virgins, my Mother. To thee do I come: before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. Oh Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petition, but in they tender mercy hear and answer me. Amen
