Among the Victims













Among the almost 50,000 estimated victims of the terrible earthquake in Haiti was the archbishop of Port-au-Prince, Joseph Serge Miot, who died when his office, adjacent to the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption, collapsed along with the cathedral.  Archbishop Miot died united with the poor who were under his care.  These photos of the ruined cathedral are from the BBC's website.
