Condolences and prayers for our Japanese friends

CCI wishes to express its condolences to the Japanese people in their moment of grave need following the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear plant explosions.

“Continue to pray for the people of Japan,” CCI convenor MJ Ruben said.

“YPD and YCW friends in Japan are safe, according to information received from them,” Ruben added.

“The entire world is in grip of fear and uncertainty,” he continued in a Facebook post.

“All the development and progress made can be wiped out in seconds by natural disasters. The greatest need of the hour is the stress on ‘ecological education’. There is no other alternative but to stop abusing nature and a rethinking on the type of ‘technology of death and destruction,'” Ruben noted.

CCI STATEMENT

IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE SUFFERING PEOPLE OF JAPAN

Dear Friends,

As news of fresh disasters – both natural and man made – come in each day, the entire world is in deep sorrow and solidarity with the people of Japan.

Cardijn Community International (CCI) expresses its deepest condolences to the affected people and appeal to everyone of you to urge your government, civil society organisations and communities to render all possible assistance and cooperation to Japan at this hour of great tragedy.

CCI appeals to all concerned to join its global call to all governments to give up destructive technologies including nuclear technology and begin to develop eco-friendly and alternative technologies.

All our efforts towards development and improvement in the lives of the people become futile in the face of nature’s fury. Therefore, let us learn to stop abusing nature and promote harmony between humanity and nature. The need of the hour is ‘education in ecology’.

United in prayers with you for the people of Japan and hoping that no such calamitis recur in any part of the world,

In Solidarity,

for International Coordination of CCI,

M. J. Ruben

International Convenor.

    THIS WONDERFUL PRAYER WAS PASSED ON TO US SO WE ARE PASSING IT ON.
    EVERY LITTLE BIT HELPS!

    Lord, I just want to say THANK YOU,
    Because this morning I woke up and knew where my children were.

    Because this morning my home was still standing,
    Because this morning I am not crying
    Because my spouse, my child, my brother or sister, my parent does not need to be buried or to be pulled out from underneath a pile of concrete,
    Because this morning I was able to drink a glass of water,
    Because this morning I was able to turn on the light,
    Because this morning I was able to take a shower,
    Because this morning I was not planning a funeral,

    But most of all I thank you this morning because I still have life and a voice to cry out for the people of Japan .
    Lord I cry out to you, the One that makes the impossible, possible,
    The One that turns darkness in to light,
    I cry out that You give those mothers strength,

    That You give them peace that surpasses all understanding,
    That You may open the streets so that help can come,
    That You may provide doctors, nurses, food, water, and all that they need in a blink of an eye.

    For all those that have lost family members, give them peace, give them hope, give them courage to continue to go on!
    Protect the children and shield them with your power.
    I pray all this in the name of Jesus!!!

    To all our email friends, please continue to forward this so that we can pray together for the people in Japan
