Mindful of my imperfections, seeking to know Truth more deeply and to live Love more fully.

Quid sum miser tunc dicturus? Quem patronum rogaturus? Cum vix iustus sit securus?

Pray for the people of Haiti

Please pray for the people of Haiti, one of the most impoverished places on earth, devastated by an earhtquake yesterday. Death and destruction have fallen upon the masses of the anonymous poor and even upon individuals of prominence and influence.

Catholic News Service quotes this morning's L'Osservatore Romano with this news:

"The lifeless body of Archbishop Joseph Miot of Port-au-Prince was found this morning under the rubble of the archbishops' residence."

May God grant peace to the dead and comfort to the suffering.

May we rise to their aid.
