  • In your charity please pray for the people endangered by these fires, especially those living in Colorado Springs. Also, I would be most grateful if you would pray for rain and cooler temperatures in this drought-beleaguered state.

  • My nieces, and nephew had to evacuate Colorado Springs. The fire
    is very close to their home.

  • Frightening!  Rosaries will be offered for these poor people.

    I hope Bishop Fellay and his claque will see these horrifying pictures and contemplate ...  Kyrie Eleison.

  • Praying for these intentions, sans comments about priests.

    God keep safe your loved ones, and all whom live there.

  • I cannot fathom evacuating an entire town.  I feel terrible for the people involved.

    I am preaching to the choir here but this is another reminder to get your bug out bags and plans in place before disaster strikes, depending on the vulnerability of your geographic situation.  Sooner or later we will all face trouble.
    For it is written: I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be dispersed. Matthew 26:31

  • Those poor people!  Heartbreaking!

    This makes me wonder how much of this could've been prevented if the environmentalists hadn't prevented some controlled burns.

    May the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary console all of the people in harm's way.

  • Thank you so much , everyone, for your prayers. Temperatures have been slightly cooler lately (cooler than the weathermen predicted), but still up in the 90s. Yesterday we had good gullywasher of a thunderstorm come throught. The rain helps, but the storms also create erratic winds and lighting strikes which can exacerbate fire conditions.

    The western US has been exceptionally dry these past two years due to a strong La Nina event. Somewhat counterintuitively, cool sea surface temperatures in the Pacific Ocean cause ridges of high pressure to build in the continental interior of North America. This pushes the jet stream, and consequently the storm track, far to the north, and also keeps the cold polar air bottled up in a tight vortex around the arctic, leading to persistent hot, dry conditions further south. Winters in Colorado have been pretty weak lately, meanwhile places like Montana and Alaska have seen record amounts of snow.

    An El Nino event in the Pacific tends to have the opposite effect. When last I checked, a mild El Nino was beginning to develop, which is hopeful. A new twist on the theme of "Christ child, save us!"

  • At the end of the photo page linked in the OP there are some comments. I finally
    read some of them:

    God, please help the town of Colorado Springs. Send rain, moisture, cooler temperature to the area. It is done.

     No, it's not "done."  If "God" was going to send rain, etc. it would have happened.  You think because you pray for it, it'll happen?  It'll happen when the weather conditions are right for rain, moisture, & cooler temperatures.  "God" has nothing to do with it or it never would have happened in the first place.  It's nature, plain & simple.

     Actually  authorities have determined it was "man" not God who started the fire.

    If God can step in to save the town, it means He could have prevented it.  Total nonsense.  It's just nature.

    Here these people have a chance to pick up a little faith, but their hate of
    anything religious comes out instead. What chance will they have comes the end
    of their life, when they've lived their lives with such contempt for faith in God?  
    I suppose one upshot is the first post by Bree_thats_me has 317 likes in contrast
    to the 25 of the sad case who replied to that post.

  • From the The Saint Andrew Daily Missal with Vespers for Sundays and Feasts by Dom Gaspar Lefebvre, O.S.B., of the Abbey of St- André (Bruges, Belgium: Liturgical Apostolate of the Abbey of St-André, 1956), here are some Collect that are most appropriate to be said for those who have been affected by the wildfires and the extreme summer heat:
