Our solidarity with the Tsunami victims in Japan



To the Clergy, Religious, Lay Faithful and individuals of goodwill in this Archdiocese


Subject: Our solidarity with the victims of the Tsunami in Japan

Dearly Beloved,

The colossal destruction unleashed by an unprecedented earthquake and tsunami that hit Northern Japan earlier this month has been vividly portrayed to us by the visual and the print media. We have seen the helpless condition of the countless citizens rendered homeless and even destitute, with all their resources lost. While thousands lost their lives, the life of the survivors is extremely difficult. They continue to need all types of attention, including medical and psychological help, as they limp back towards a distant restoration of normalcy. In addition to this, there is an ongoing fear that the efforts being made to contain a major atomic crisis may not be successful, precipitating further disastrous consequences.
