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).

  1. 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.
