Earth quakes again in Italy






It has been happening very often. Many keep asking why so often. Those affected knows the fear. You can see the images and photos on the TV where people demonstrate a terrific fear and fright after the quake. Many have lost lives, many are rendered homeless in Italy where earth quake has hit. It is sad to see people losing all that they have in a fraction of seconds. You know the gravity of a tragedy till you are affected and hit by it. It is easy to express our emotions and feel bad for the people who are affected by the earth quake. 
This morning, we were Celebrating Mass in our General Curia chapel....presided over by Br. Charles Alphonso....the introduction to the Mass was over and we began praying the morning prayer.....and there we see the lamps all dancing....the chapel vacillating and dancing....all filled with fright and fear....some said that we must run away.....some said that is not so strong....but fear was seen on the face of all.....we were praising the Lord in the Psalm and we continued praising him....for few minutes it lasted and then it stopped....but we saw our lamps and the Crucifix continued vacillating for the entire mass,,,,,i said to myself.....that the Lord is indicating something to us....the lamp vacillating .....the light shining brightly.....today India is celebrating the festival of Light....but here in Italy the Light was going out.....but the Lord is great....this time no human causalities.....but destruction of property is huge....the TV channels are updating with information....many villages are on the hill....
Let us pray and ask the Lord to be with the people...
