earthquake

Jun 13, 2011

It’s just after 6pm and the geonet website already lists fifteen quakes today. Two quakes this afternoon were significant, causing major damage.

Thanks be to God there have been no reports of loss of life or of serious injury.

But the day has taken its toll on our emotions and sense of stability.  Once again we turn to prayer, especially the Collect from the Mass in time of Earthquake:


God our Father
you set the earth on its foundation
Keep us safe from the danger of earthquakes
and let us always feel the presence of your love
May we be secure in your protection
and serve you with grateful hearts
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ your Son
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit
one God, for ever and ever.
Amen
