Paulines in Pakistan

Our book center in Lahore was badly damaged by today's suicide bomber. The sisters and those who were with them are safe. However, among the dead are two Catholic school students. The Catholic "center" of Lahore was right near the government building that was targeted. Even the Cathedral was damaged. Let's pray for all who were affected by this, and even dare to ask that the damage sustained by the Catholic community will increase the Church's effectiveness in proclaiming the Gospel.

It's sad when any innocents die, be they Catholic, Muslim, Athiest, etc.

Pakistan is in bad shape right now...

I hope for everyone's safety in that part of the world.
