Haiti: Now an earthquake?

Does God have something against Haiti? Of course He doesn't, but the suffering that small country has had to undergo seems to suggest otherwise, from an earthly perspective at least. Tom Hoopes has an insightful piece in the National Catholic Register turning the earthly perspective upside down and explaining how to look at tragedy from a Catholic point of view.

  1. Luke 13:2-5
    Jesus answered, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans because they suffered this way? 3I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish. Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them—do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem? I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.”
