H/T to American Papist: Not Your Average Catholic
Catholics in Mexico City were unable to attend Mass today for fear of the swine flu (which Drudge has been reporting):
Here is the communique from the Archdiocese of Mexico.
Churches stood empty Sunday in heavily Roman Catholic Mexico City after services were canceled, and health workers screened airports and bus stations for people sickened by a new strain of swine flu that experts fear could become a global epidemic. (AP)
Let's pray for those who could not attend Mass today, and pray for a speedy end to this outbreak. Amen.
I would add, let's also pray for all the victims and their families and hope that this hasn't been concocted in a lab by anyone with nefarious intent.
