    Saint Lawrence pray for us all, All; pray that we so-called moderns are not roasted to death by global warming, yet recognize we must work to put out the earthly fires of greed, dishonesty and denial, while we purify and peer through the heated smokes of obfuscation and dishonest science; pray that all earth tortures end, that evil doctors once again "do no harm" as even ancient Hippocrates asked, adding, "in Jesus name," to his oath; pray that those suffering may find relief from their pains, that those causing conflicts find confessions, repentances, repairs and penances; pray Yahweh remain forgiving, Christ continue giving, Mary shine loving, and new Jerusalem descend hovering, covering all our griefs with joys, Amen
