Our Lady of the Taper...bring light to the trapped miners

The Jarrow Scriptorium reminded me with his post that I also intended to post on the three trapped Swansea miners and, of course, offer prayers for the soul of the miner who has been killed in this awful accident.

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, Cardigan

Out of the depths I have cried unto thee, O Lord; Lord, hear my voice. O let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplication.

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!


  1. I hope the three trapped miners, soon return to their homes and spend as much as possible.
    you have a happy weekend.
    a hug.

  2. Poor souls, RIP. Our Lady of Sorrows comfort the bereaved.
