Following is the full text of Archbishop Jason Gordon’s statement issued October 21.
As we awake today, the day after the relentless rain and resulting floods, let us thank God for life. We have witnessed rains in our nation the likes of which we have not seen in living memory. Many are affected. Many lost their homes, cars, furniture and clothes. Others are safe, warm and dry.
Today, as Trinidadians and Tobagonians, let us act with solidarity and share with those who are affected. If you have two bottles of water, let us share one; those with food should do the same (Lk 3:10–11).
