We remember, also, the families and friends who will be undergoing severe stress at this moment. Who better to turn to in our hour of need than Our Lady.
Whether we pray to her Perpetual Succour or her Taper aspect, it does not matter; what matters is that we pray.
And, if I recall correctly the Chilean miners also had a great devotion to their patron saint, St Laurence while St Barbara is also a patron and St Anne, mother of Our Lady is yet another.
Our Lady of the Taper - Pray for the trapped miners and their families
All miners are reported dead - Our Lady of the Taper bring them eternal light!
