His Eminence Cardinal DiNardo of Galveston-Houston comforted the people in Harvey by assuring God’s presence in the country amid the immense devastation left behind in the wake of Hurricane. His Lordship Cardinal DiNardo asked the faithful to be strong in their Christian faith and reminded that the Lord is never distant from his people but is intimately close.

As reported by catholicnews.in, His Eminence Cardinal DiNardo remarked that “When we survey the loss of devastation, it is natural to wonder how such calamity fits into God’s plan but the problem of suffering is a mystery that is always with us and however, our Christian faith reminds us that the Lord is never distant from us but is intimately close.” Further, His Lordship added, “When it seems that we are on verge of perishing, we must wake up the Lord in our united prayers for personal need and for all of our brothers and sisters who are suffering.”

His Lordship Cardinal DiNardo voiced confidence that God’s providence will ultimately bring about good, despite the suffering and loss that was caused by the storm.
