All Christians have a duty to assist those in Haiti, says archbishop

.- In an exclusive interview with Catholic News Agency, the Apostolic Nuncio to the Dominican Republic, Archbishop Josef Wesolowski, emphasized that the current situation in Haiti should motivate all Christians, regardless of denomination, to contribute to recovery efforts in the country. 

Speaking with CNA outside the Apostolic Nunciature in Port-au-Prince, Archbishop Wesolowski remarked: “We need to pray for the victims and for the deceased.”  He added that we must “express our condolences as well to those who have been seriously affected.” 

“Prayer is essential, but not sufficient,” the archbishop continued.  “Concrete help is needed.   Pope Benedict has asked the entire Church to provide assistance to the Haitians.”

Noting the aid which has been sent to Haiti by the Church in the Dominican Republic, the archbishop  said, “We are preparing to help for the long term, to help rebuild the Church, the seminaries and what has been lost in Haiti. I am sure that with the help of all Catholics we will be able to do that and more.”
