Today our coordinator forwarded this letter of Tammy for publication while Fr. Nilo Gealan, SVD sent this “Oratio Imperata”


 Sr. Emma,

 I feel that we can unite and support each other as our countries are suffering from natural calamities, ours – Floods and yours – Earth Quake and how about Vietnam and Samoa as well as American Samoa. Mother earth is raging with anger and most of those who suffered are the poor people and who are the great destroyers of Mother Earth are the rich countries and rich people! There is no hope to save Mother Earth no matter what the world leaders say or do the damage is great and it cannot be repaired. We have all to pay the price.  But we still rely on our compassionate God that we may be spared from these disasters.

Let support each other in prayers.




Oratio Imperata

For Deliverance From Calamities


Almighty Father, we raise our hearts to You in gratitude for the wonders of creation

of which we are part, for Your Providence in sustaining our needs,

and for Your Wisdom that guides the course of the universe.

We acknowledge our sins against You and the rest of creation.

We have not been good stewards of Nature.

We have confused Your command to subdue the Earth.

The environment is made to suffer our wrongdoing,

and now we reap the harvest of our abuse and indifference.

Global warming is upon us, typhoons, floods, volcanic eruptions,

and other natural calamities occur in increasing numbers and intensity.

We turn to You, our loving Father, and beg forgiveness for our sins.

We ask that we, our loved ones and our hard earned possessions

be spared from the threat of calamities, natural and man-made.

We beseech You to inspire us all to grow into responsible stewards of Your creation,

and generous neighbors to those in need.
