From the Desk of Msgr. Charles

As I write this column (Wednesday), another hurricane is heading toward the United States. It is now approaching Puerto Rico and is classified as a category 5 (the highest). This storm is most likely to impact Florida, but landfall on the Carolinas is also possible. By the time you read this, the situation should be clear.

Thank you for responding generously to the appeal for assistance to the people of Texas and Louisiana. There may well be need for assistance to the residents of the southeastern states as well.

In any case, our help to all who are in need is a concrete expression of our love for our brothers and sisters.

Please continue to pray for all victims of the recent storms.
