Turning to Jesus for a Flood of Graces

Jesus in the Eucharist is the daily Source and Summit of life for any Catholic community, but especially uplifts in times of crisis. Kakinada townspeople have been struggling with fierce storms, flooding, homes and belongings being washed away, all week. Fr. Varghese has been out with his people in disaster relief efforts until deep at night. One morning, he returned near 3 AM, after supplying hungry storm victims with food. But gathering his people at Sacred Heart Mission for a special time of Eucharistic adoration and prayer offered the best kind of relief anyone can find in time of disaster -- Divine intervention. Fr. Varghese just sent these photos this morning.

See posts here and here to see flood photos from this week's monsoon disaster, that has left many people in the Kakinada area homeless and hungry.
