"in time of earthquake"

Feb 23, 2011

There is a Mass in the Roman Missal for use “in time of earthquake”.

Tonight (Wednesday 23 February 7.00pm) Bishop Barry Jones will celebrate this Mass at Our Lady of Victories.

At such a time, when we are surrounded by such devistation, destruction and the death of so many people, with many others unaccounted for, we feel helpless. In our need we turn to God.

In our prayer we will pray for those who have died, and for those who grieve. We will pray for strength for those who continue to search for those who remain unaccounted for. We pray for all the people of our city, and our country. In the midst of our suffering, may we know God’s peace and love.

While you may be able to be present tonight for the Mass, many others will prefer to stay at home. I invited those at home or in other places to take some minutes between 7 & 8pm, to pray with us. We will be united in this prayer.
