Is it superstitious to use the Blessed Sacrament “against” natural disasters?
One of the most famous examples of using the Blessed Sacrament to repel impending disaster was St. Clare’s use of it to repel Muslim invaders from her convent.
Sometimes prayers are not answered the way we wish they would be, so we shouldn’t lose faith when they’re not. We should always seek good spiritual guidance when we’re having difficulty discerning God’s will for our lives amidst our trials, whatever they may be.
