In the midst of all the horror and devastation caused by the recent eruptions there are also many stories of great kindness and generosity.  Let me share one with you.  A few days ago some of our sisters were visiting one of the villages badly damaged by volcanic ash and they saw a huge lorry filled with rice and vegetables arrive.   The people from a village that had not been damaged by the volcano had gathered the food and rented the lorry and had come to distribute it to those who had lost their produce.  Those who gave the food are not wealthy people – they shared what they had harvested  with those who had lost their produce…This was a case of the poor feeding the poor – and finding the money to rent the lorry.  I was deeply moved when I heard this story…I hope that I can be as generous in giving to those in need, I hope we all can…
