considerably worried about how all our Passionists there fared.

Even if there were
no physical injuries, the shock must have been quite great. All of us want you
to know you are held close in our hearts, and that goes for our fellow
religious there, your kith and kin and all the Japanese population. We have
seen daunting scenes on the TV and in the newspapers as also on the web in our

to all the victims and their families. Were any of you or our houses there
directly affected? Please inform me as soon as you can and don’t hesitate to
tell me if there is anything we can do for you. At any rate, know that our
prayers are with you at this time of suffering and worry.

My fraternal
greetings go out to you and your Consultors, Fathers Francis Nakamura and Isaia

thoughts to those days of your Empire

time? May our good God comfort and console the injured and those who have lost
everything, and may he give eternal rest to all those who lost their lives.

from you, please accept my fraternal greetings as well as those of all the
General Council and the community here at Saints John and Paul.
