Prayer ritual for Katrina victims

Cc'ed from Hellenion member emailing list....


I propose the following:

People here at 7pm each day--their time zone or CST, where most of the
damage occurred--do a libation or a prayer offering for those who were
and are victims of Hurricane Katrina. I'm choosing 7 because it's
Apollo's number and he is a god of healing.

If people don't know what to do, they say the following and offer
incense or a libation:

"Khairete, oi theoi/(o gods), please have mercy and compassion upon
those who suffered in the hurricane and give quick speed to the rescue
missions as well as the rebuilding of the cities harmed."

If you are unable to offer the incense or libation at that time, feel
free to just say the prayer.

If you come up with something else to do, feel free to post it here.
If you do this at all, please post.

I plan to do so myself. People are welcome to join me. I hope that you do.

If you wish to take practical means as well as prayer, follow the
links below to make a donation, or give blood to your local Red Cross.
