Early reports from the region suggest an unmitigated disaster: the Archbishop of Haiti, Joseph Serge Miot has died in the rubble, hundreds of priests and seminarians dead, and a total death toll that may reach 100,000. One hundred thousand.
Let us help those who survived, and pray for those who have died.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine on them. And may the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
