Pope Francis DOOM NOVENA! Pope Prays For Japan's 120 Flood Victims Two Weeks Later Hundreds More Die In Laos Dam Collapse!
Pope Francis expressed his "heartfelt solidarity" with all those affected by the worst flood disaster to strike western Japan in 35 years and said he is praying “especially for the repose of the deceased, the healing of those injured and the consolation of all those who grieve”. In a telegramme signed by Vatican Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin on the Pope's behalf, Francis said he is "deeply saddened to learn of the loss of life and of the injury caused by the serious floods following the heavy rains in Japan". Officials said on Monday that at least 119 people have been killed and dozens are still missing after torrential rain unleashed floods and landslides that have forced several million from their homes. The Pope also offered “encouragement to the civil authorities and all those involved in the search and rescue efforts as they assist the victims of this disaster” and upon all he invoked “abundant blessings”. The Meteorological Agency is warning that that landslides and flooding continue to pose a danger and the number of casualties is expected to rise further. Many people are believed to be stranded in their homes where roads have been cut off by the flooding. As of Monday morning, around 23,000 people were sheltered in evacuation centers, and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced that a special disaster response unit has been boosted to 73,000 and said it is “putting in utmost efforts to save lives.” Abe also cancelled a planned trip to Europe and the Middle East as the government stepped up rescue operations, and is reportedly arranging visits to areas hit hard by the massive flooding and landslides that began last Thursday.

"I didn't see, I don't see any Great Pope or Great Monarch before an extremely great tribulation, horrifying, terrible and general for all Christendom. But before that time, twice there will be a short lived peace; two shaky, servile, doubtful popes" Mélanie
“What countries shall be preserved from such calamities? Where shall we go for refuge? I, in my turn, shall ask, What is the country that observes the commandments of God? What country is not influenced by human fear where the interest of the Church and the glory of God are at stake? (Ah, indeed! What country, what nation upon earth?) In behalf of my Superior and myself, I have often asked myself where we could go for refuge, had we the means for the journey and for our subsistence, on condition that no person were to know it? But I renounce these useless thoughts. We are very guilty! In consequence of this, it is necessary that a very great and terrible scourge should come to revive our faith, and to restore to us our very reason, which we have almost entirely lost. Mélanie
