Philippines Typhoon Aftermath: When Religion is Solace

When happened with Catholicism in the area utterly devastated by the typhoon? Most of the people in the Philippines are Catholics. This news article is about this.

I’ll include a prayer for these people who continue to experience such loss, grief, and suffering.

Hail Mary, full of grace.
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women,
And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners.
Now and at the hour of our death.

This is the time when God proves Himself; when He provides the miracle of the Eucharist - proving to them that His joy does not depend on anything, & that all they truly need is Him. Mass should be said very often within this situation & community.
