"natural disasters like earthquakes and tsunamis, which are the result of the laws of nature, are part of God’s plan for the world."
A really thought provoking piece from Edmond Eh on The Prompt webzine. It's seven months behind the tragedy, but still as poignant.
It also makes reference to an earlier post about whether Archbishop gave a proper reply when asked by the media how the Catholic faith reconciles their belief in a good god with all that suffering.
Another old post on this blog on the Asian Tsunami: Why God 'allowed' deadly tsunami to strike.
