Another natural catastrophe struck Haiti. There is still no word concerning causalities. Their National Palace, parliament, and tax office collapsed, as well as some sschools, and hospitals. Their Arch-Bishop Joseph Serge Miot was among those killed. And in complete disarray, "people wandered the streets holding hands. Thousands gathered in public squares to sing hymns."
"The hospitals cannot handle all these victims," said Dr. Louis-Gerard Gilles. "Haiti needs to pray. We all need to pray together."
I can not give you a great argument for why God allows these catastrophes. I really can not. But I can quote Christ's words in the Gospel of Luke:
There were some present at that very time who told him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. And he answered them, Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans, because they suffered in this way? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish. Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them: do you think that they were worse offenders than all the others who lived in Jerusalem? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.
"Haiti needs to pray. We all need to pray together."
