On December 23, an eruption and landslide under the sea again caused a tsunami in Indonesia, this time in the Sanda Strait connecting the island of Java and that of Sumatra. Many people died, are injured, or are still missing. Many people are left homeless. As Congregation of Brothers CMM, we pray for the these people of Indonesia.
Pope Francis invited everyone to join him in prayer for the victims and their loved ones. “I am spiritually close to the displaced and to all the people who are so sorely tried, imploring God for relief in their suffering. I appeal that our solidarity and the support of the International Community is not lacking to these our brothers and sisters,” he said.
