General Intercesion
Oil Spill - Louisiana Coast

Over the past two weeks we have learned of the growing seriousness of the oil spill off the Louisiana coast. This accident is seriously impacting our land, our wildlife and the livelihoods of thousands of people. We do not know the extent of damage that will be suffered, but it is clear that the effects will be extensive and long-lasting. I ask everyone’s prayer for a speedy end to the leak and for a rapid recovery from the damaging effects of this disastrous event. I have also asked pastors to include a petition in the General Intercessions at all Masses in the Diocese of Lafayette beginning Sunday, May 9, 2010.
