A Prayer Against Storms through the Intercession of Saint Scholastica

Hurricane Iselle is now expected to hit the Big Island of Hawaii today at 3:00 p.m. local time. As we pray for your safety and for a weakening of the hurricane, Father Selvester sent a prayer for the intercession of Saint Scholastica, the twin sister of Saint Benedict and patroness against storms:
Blessed and Holy Saint Scholastica, intercede for your people in this time of need.
May your prayers go to the throne of God in order that we be delivered from harm that our lives and our homes be protected, and churches stand erect and ready to serve your people.
Finally, Saint Scholastica, may your prayers deliver all of those in danger, heal all those in illness, and direct all of those without shelter.
Intercede for us, great patroness, and offer us the good weather for which we hope.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
