Three solid pillars
· The Pope on the 5th anniversary of the earthquake in Haiti ·
The material and spiritual reconstruction of Haiti — devastated five years ago by an earthquake — must rely on “three solid pillars: the human person, ecclesial communion, and the local Church”. Pope Francis recalled this on Saturday morning, 10 January, during an audience to participants in a meeting organized in Rome by by the Pontifical Council Cor Unum and the Pontifical Commission for Latin America on the anniversary of the natural disaster. “Much has been done toward rebuilding the country in these five years” the Pontiff said, while acknowledging that “much remains to be done”. His wish is that “the Church in Haiti must become always more alive and fruitful, to witness to Christ and to make its contribution to the development of the nation”.
