Caritas Community, adults and kids alike, play in the rain during Hurricane Nate, which made landfall on Saturday night and moved north into the Birmingham, Alabama area Sunday morning.
One person wrote to us on Saturday afternoon:
“Praying that you come through safely with the hurricane at your doorstep. Let Jesus be your shield. We had our storm earlier this year and I know prayer was the best protection.”
Our daily Rosary is always full of joys. A double-joy yesterday, as Hurricane Nate, reached Caritas as a Tropical Storm and provided plenty of rain, just perfectly in time for the daily Rosary. When your life is connected to Heaven through prayer and sacrifice, with Jesus as your shield, God turns everything into joy.

This is the fruit of a life surrendered to God. We are continuing to pray and fast as we approach the Fatima Jubilee on Friday, October 13. Make a spur-of the-moment decision to come and pray in the Bedroom of Apparitions and gain the Plenary Indulgence on Friday the 13th, and then climb to the Cross on Penitentiary Mountain on Saturday the 14th. For more information contact Caritas in the U.S. at 205-672-2000, or visit here to see hotel information and directions.
