“Each morning when we came out of the house there were people gathered everywhere, begging for help. Children were crying… people were dying all around us… parents were crying as they buried their children. I knew a lot of these people, because I had lived among them in the parish. As a young priest I was not prepared to deal with this — it was unimaginable.”
