Fr. Ray Schmack of Christchurch, New Zealand is one of the international advisors of the ITMS. I sent him a message expressing the prayers and good wishes of the Society following Friday’s earthquake there. This is how he described the scene to me:
“It’s been a horrible experience but thank God it’s property and structures that are most effected.
We’re continuing to have frequent, and at times quite frightening, after shocks.
Do keep us in your prayers please.”
