Inescapable network of mutuality…

As we hear about the devastation in Haiti bloggers around the world are calling for support and prayers for those in Haiti. The images, descriptions and stories of suffering and loss can be overwhelming, but the response has been amazing too.

I wanted to share with you a quote from Martin Luther King Jr., “All men are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality”.

This mutuality connects us to the entire world; a mother at the bed side of a child in sub-Sahara Africa, an elderly women in Thailand, newlyweds in Central America and all those suffering in Haiti. As Catholics we are reminded of this connection as we receive Christ in the Eucharist, there are many parts but we are all one body.

Please join Mission Doctors Association in offering support for the efforts at Hôpital Sacré Coeur, a hospital in northern Haiti, open and operational and in need of your help.

You can do so with a tax deductible donation on their web site through PayPal - You can help them meet these urgent needs, and of course keep all in your prayers.

Our hearts and prayers go to the people of Haiti and to all who are called to provide relief.
