Suffering Haiti

Wretched Haiti is even more wretched in the wake of a magnitude 7.0 earthquake, followed by numerous aftershocks, at least ten of which were greater than magnitude 5.0.   It is reported that many of the most important buildings and landmarks in the capital, including the National Assembly building, the presidential palace and the Cath├ędrale de Notre-Dame have been destroyed.  As for the unfortunate Haitians themselves, who knows how many thousands lie buried beneath the rubble in the slums of Port-au-Prince?

St. Emidius, patron against earthquakes, intercede for poor, devastated Haiti.
