Here is one of five pictures sent to me by Rev. Jose Peter from India. The devastation in South India is overwhelming (no pun intended). I think the other pictures are AP wirephotos and are therefore probably copyright and I'm disinclined to post them for that reason. We have reason to be thankful that this has not befallen us.
"There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things? I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem? I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish."
