Jesuit Reflects on the Aftermath of Hurricane Sandy
Tags: Hurricane Sandy, Jesuit, Jesuit Father Jim Conroy, jesuits, Society of Jesus
Last week, Hurricane Sandy devastated communities up and down the East Coast, as well as in the Caribbean, including Cuba, Jamaica and Haiti. The Society of Jesus in the United States asks for prayers for the victims of this disaster here and abroad.
Jesuit Father Jim Conroy, director of the Jesuit Collaborative in Boston, writes that in the midst of great loss and uncertainty, we search for answers.
He suggests we begin by “asking God for the grace to see and understand what God wants us to see and understand, by thanking God for being alive, for those who survived, for the generosity and heroic efforts of friends, neighbors and first responders, for the sun coming out again.”
