"The Fury of Nature Is Not the Wrath of God..."

"... who instead prepares a great grace for mankind," instructed this episcopal delegation to the land of an historically antagonistic nation — Korean Bishops in Japan: "May the tsunami be a new dawn for Land of the Rising Sun". Their Excellencies noted, "More than the money, the closeness and friendship between Catholics of both countries counted."

The triple disasters that befell Japan "provide a new opportunity for us all. The faithful are questioning why God has allowed them, but we should instead concentrate on the great graces which, through this, he prepares for man. Concern for others, compassion and mutual aid has been reborn in Japan: this change is a seed from which a new horizon for Japanese society is being born."
