If you have turned on the news this morning you are aware that a powerful earthquake has devastated the Carribean nation of Haiti.  It is the poorest nation in the western hemisphere. Some reports are saying that in the capital city of Port au Prince there are more buildings down than standing.  This includes the hospital and the presidential palace.

These people are our brothers and sisters. We need to show them our solidarity through prayer and fasting today and in the days ahead.

For the dead on that nation: “Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.  May their souls and all the souls of the faithfully departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen”
