Earthquake in Peru
« on: August 16, 2007, 03:15:48 PM »
For those killed or injured in the earthquake in Peru.  So far the death toll is numbered at 437, but the number is sure to increase.

Lord, have mercy.

Well, since I started this thread, the death toll has increased to 510, with close to three times that many injured.  What jumped out to me as amazing and rather sad is that a good number of those who died were inside churches that collapsed while they were commemorating the Assumption/Dormition of Our Lady.

^I had heard that as well. We all have to die, but I can't think of a better thing to be doing than to be praying when it happens.

Lord have mercy on the people of Peru, and make the memory of those who died to be eternal.
