Haiti Earthquake: Help the Victims

If you're unaware, a devastating earthquake killed many, some estimated as many as a half million people. (Story here)

Pope Benedict XVI said "I invite everyone to join in my prayer to the Lord for the victims of this catastrophe and for those who are mourning their loss. I assure my spiritual closeness to people who have lost their homes and to all those affected in various ways by this calamity, imploring from God consolation and relief of their suffering,"

The Archbishop of Port-au-Prince has died, and the Cathedral has taken heavy damage, leaving the people of Haiti in even more dire need of our prayers. Please pray for them.

Also, if you have the means, consider donating to help them out. The Pope implored "the generosity of everyone, so that our brothers and sisters receive our concrete solidarity and the effective support of the international community in this moment of need and suffering,"
