GO TO CONFESSION!
Interesting. I had no idea there was an earthquake that big. It’s typically hard to avoid news like that around here. I live fairly close to Kyushu (5 hours by car, half of that being the ferry) and didn’t feel a thing. After looking it up on the Japanese meteorological website, it seems the quake was located off the far coast of Kyushu, explaining why I didn’t feel it. It occurred at 17:41 local time, which means I was sitting right where I am at this moment, watching the sumo tournament. No tsunami threat, so I’m not overly concerned; I doubt anyone in Kagoshima (the closest prefecture) is either. I’ll definitely second (or third) the directive to go to confession.
One wonders if it’s widely known that a 7.1 magnitude is ten times greater magnitude that 7.0.
None of us are long for this world. Some envision surviving catastrophe with bug-out bags and guns. In reality, the greatest weapon is the rosary. I worry more about and EMP (from the Sun, or from a nuclear device), or a financial melt-down. Some engage in morose delectation, and say, “this could never happen to me,” or, “I’m glad it’s him and not me.” But the bell does toll for thee. Do you think the world will be a safer place the further it drifts from Christ? We must be prepared for the world as we know it to end…not with a bang, but with a whimper.
On a very serious note: please pray for my pastor, a native Japanese, who had gone home for three weeks. He arrived earlier this week.
On a differently serious note: why is it that the terrorist attack monopolized the news and the earthquake didn’t get a blip in any of the news sources I check (except, of course, here)?
On a similarly different serious note: which caused more damage: the Synod on the Family, the earthquake, or the terrorist attack?
