Haiti is still very much on my mind. Everyone's mind. In class tonight, we used Haiti as our conversation topic.
Some question the existence of God when disaster strikes. I always think thank God we have Him when disaster strikes. We live on earth, not heaven. Here in our world bad things happen. Why? It's the nature of our world. That's why we need God. Remember God gave the world to man to take care of. Hence, we must take care of the victims of Haiti. There's many organizations taking donations. I'm giving just a few places:
Aid to the Church in need.
To Haiti Health Centers
Catholic Relief Services
Tonight's prayers in the Liturgy of the Hours were poignant when applied to Haiti.
.2 God is for us a refuge and strength,
a helper close at hand, in time of distress,
.3 so we shall not fear though the earth should rock,
though the mountains fall into the depths of the sea;
.4 even though its waters rage and foam,
even though the mountains be shaken by its waves.
Oh Lord, hear our prayers.
