Hurricane Katrina: Blog for Relief Day

A fundraising blogburst for the victims of the storm.

Hugh Hewitt suggested a blogburst — a "unified blog beg". Glenn Reynolds is blogging a list of organizations to whom donations can be made. N.Z. Bear is coordinating bloggers. (As I write, The Blog from the Core is ranked 61 out of 585 member blogs.) And, Michelle Malkin has been all over this from the start.

Allow me to suggest, Faithful Reader, a donation to Catholic Charities.

Last, a prayer in time of tribulation, from the old Roman Ritual:

Almighty God, do not disdain your people who cry to you in their affliction, but for the glory of your name be pleased to help us who are so sorely troubled. Show us, O Lord, your inexpressible mercy, blot out our transgressions, and graciously deliver us from the condemnation they deserve.
We entreat you, Lord God, grant us, your servants, the enjoyment of lasting health of body and mind; and by the glorious intercession of blessed Mary, ever a Virgin, free us from present sorrow and give us everlasting joy.
Graciously hear us, O Lord, in our tribulation, and turn away the stripes of your wrath which we justly deserve. God, our refuge and our strength and source of all goodness, heed the holy prayers of your Church, and grant that we fully obtain whatever we ask for in faith; through Christ our Lord. Amen.
