  HURRICANE SEASON

The 2022 Atlantic Hurricane season begins on June 1st, which is just a few weeks away. It is predicted that this season will be an active one, with 13 to 20 named storms and 6 to 10 hurricanes. We still have vivid memories of Hurricane Dorian of 2019 when Grand Bahama and Abaco suffered catastrophic damage and many deaths. It only takes one storm to change our lives. 

Preparedness is key, and we urge all residents of the Bahamas to be prepared. This includes securing your homes, homeowners insurance, extra supplies including non perishable items, water and medications, flashlights/ lanterns and all other tools required in the event you lose power, an escape plan and locating a Hurricane shelter or suitable housing in the event you have to vacate your home. It is never too early to start preparing.


   

In both human and divine relationships, there can be no romance without a reverent listening to the other. When we make room in our lives for silence, the heaven and earth within us find each other. Then the Word of God is able to put down deep roots. These listening roots sense our desire for bonding with the Holy One.  


            

 Pope Francis' Urbi et orbi meditation

 Pope Francis meditated on the calming of the storm from the Gospel of Mark during the prayer service over which he presided on the steps of St Peter's Basilica on Friday evening. Here is the full text.

“When evening had come” (Mk 4:35). The Gospel passage we have just heard begins like this. For weeks now it has been evening. Thick darkness has gathered over our squares, our streets and our cities; it has taken over our lives, filling everything with a deafening silence and a distressing void, that stops everything as it passes by; we feel it in the air, we notice in people’s gestures, their glances give them away. We find ourselves afraid and lost. Like the disciples in the Gospel we were caught off guard by an unexpected, turbulent storm. We have realized that we are on the same boat, all of us fragile and disoriented, but at the same time important and needed, all of us called to row together, each of us in need of comforting the other. On this boat… are all of us. Just like those disciples, who spoke anxiously with one voice, saying “We are perishing” (v. 38), so we too have realized that we cannot go on thinking of ourselves, but only together can we do this.
