Our Lady of Prompt Succor is the patroness of the state of Louisiana, and of the city of New Orleans. During hurricane season, prayers are said at every Mass in the city during the Prayers of the Faithful requesting Our Lady of Prompt Succor’s intercession and protection. After Hurricane Katrina, prayers were made to Our Lady of Prompt Succor asking for the quick recovery of the damaged city and surrounding area. Typically depicted with roses, Samuel requested her standing among Louisiana’s state flower: the magnolia.
