1 John 5:16
If anyone sees his brother committing a sin not leading to death, he shall ask and God will for him give life to those who commit sin not leading to death. There is a sin leading to death; I do not say that he should make request for this.

Lamentations 2:18-19
Let your cry go up to the Lord: O wall of the daughter of Zion,
Let your weeping be flowing down like a stream day and night;
give yourself no rest,
let not your eyes keep back the drops of sorrow.

19 Arise, cry out in the night: in the beginning of the watches pour out your heart like water before the face of the Lord: lift up your hands toward him for the life of your young children, that fain for hunger in the top of every street.

Open your hearts to Myanmar, Pope implores

VATICAN CITY (CNA) – During Wednesday’s general audience(7MAY2008), Pope Benedict also expressed his grief over the tragedy in Myanmar, also know as Burma, where upwards of 20,000 people are dead and some 40,000 still missing after a devastating cyclone ripped through the south eastern part of the country.
I make my own the cry of pain and the cry for help for the dear people of Myanmar, who have seen the sudden destruction of so many lives by the shattering violence of the cyclone Nargis, in addition to goods and means of subsistence,” the Pope said. “As I have already assured in the message of solidarity sent to the President of the Episcopal Conference, I am spiritually close to all those affected. I also want to repeat to all the invitation to open your hearts in pity and generosity that, thanks to the cooperation of those who are able and wish to provide aid, we can alleviate the suffering caused by so terrible tragedy.”
