MERCY FOR HAITI
Like thousands around the world my prayer is intensely for our suffering Brothers and Sisters in Haiti.
Very simply here I wish to remind everyone that the patroness of Haiti is Our Lady of Perpetual Help and among Haiti’s heavenly companions I am sure Ven. Pierre Toussaint is interceding as well.
Let us all, along with prayer, do what we can to follow Pope Benedict’s call for true charity to enable both Catholic charities and all other NGOs to come to the aid of our Brothers and Sisters and along with praying for the comfort of the injured, the homeless, the widowed and orphaned let us implore mercy for all the deceased.
