Bishop Sees God's Message in Tsunami

The message for all of us is "you know neither the day nor the hour."

From Bishop sees god's message in tsunami :- - India News - Webindia123.com:

"Was the killer tsunami a message from god? A reflection on the way man lives?

Yes, says Bishop Alex Dias of the Stella Morris Cathedral Church, the main Catholic church here.

'I believe that the tsunami is a warning. A warning from god to reflect deeply on the way we lead our lives,' said Dais, as he stood among the ragtag tarpaulin tents in the 900-strong relief camp the church is running for tsunami survivors.

More than 800 people are now confirmed dead in the Indian archipelago of the Andaman and Nicobar, which has 572 islands, islets and rocks, and more than 5,000 still missing, a week after giant tidal waves hit the islands. "
