Outrage in Orissa

More details on the persecution of the Church in Orissa in Eastern India, this time over at Inside Catholic (the Crisis Magazine blog): this post is based on reports from the Capuchin provincial of the area.
They describe the over 3000 people now living in squalor, not able to find warmth, running water or hot food due to the magnitude of destruction. The utter lack of regard for the needs of women and children. The refusal of the local governments to allow the filing of police reports. The censuring of the media.
I've blogged on this before: a query for "Orissa" on this blog turns up a sad list of posts. [H/t Amy.]

Please continue to pray for the persecuted Church.
