Faith in the Wasteland

The caption for this picture reads: "Jikou Yoshida, a Buddhist nun, prays in a tsunami-devastated area of Minamisanriku, on April 12." It's from a photo-essay on the aftermath of the tsunami entitled Japan's Chernobyl. Looking at this image, I was reminded of the verse from last Sunday's First Lesson for Lent 5A, "He said to me, 'Mortal, can these bones live?' I answered, 'O Lord God, you know.'" (Ezekiel 37:3). MP+

A moving post, Padre. It occurred to me yesterday that suddenly, I am hearing so much less about Japan than I was just a little while ago. I wish I knew what to do to help.

I think with enough faith the bones live. It's a good post though.
