In August 2018 we heard the devastating news of the severe floods in Kerala, South India and although the sisters in Makkiyad and Piravom are safe, the heavy, unrelenting rainfall is making life very difficult these days. At St Scholastica’s Convent in Makkiyad, the rain caused serious landslides and the pictures show how the soil from our land has fallen onto the road outside the convent. Meanwhile there are many families of our sisters who have had to leave their homes and are staying in camps. Please pray that it will soon be safe for them to return to their villages and that their lives will soon return to normal. Let us remember all those who have lost their loved ones, their homes and their land.
