St. Elmo, protect Texas!

Today is the Feast day of St. Elmo-patron of sailors and protection from storms. St. Elmo's Fire is an atmospheric phenomenon that can be seen before or during the storm - lights on masts, rocks, ropes etc. 
It's named after St. Elmo, who did not fear thunders striking beneath him. Sailors say it's a good omen and sign, that God guides the ship through the storm.
