All that is left, block upon block...Holy Trinity Cathedral


Philipe Qualo sent out these pictures which got to me by way of Pere Yvan Francois now in Florida.

They are pictures of a pile of rubble, all that is left of Holy Trinity Cathedral in Port-au-Prince, a place of beauty and rest in the midst of the City, now dust.







And still we know that there will arise from this rubble some new flower...The Bishop, Bishop Jean-Zache Duracin, is now camped out on the grounds of College St. Pierre in Port-au-Prince. Some reports say that he has gathered about 1000 people into this a makeshift community there.

Pray for the Bishop and people, the people of the camp and the city and the country.

  2. Mark, may I have permission to use the top photo on my blog? I know that the picture is not yours, and my use may not be possible.

  3. I think it would be fine. I don't know the photographer, but getting the word out is more important (I think).

  4. Well, we will simply have to have a Special Fund to rebuild it to the way it was--or better!
