A friend from Ireland has found himself helping a Belfast man, Joby Fox, to rescue Middle Eastern refugees in capsizing boats off the storm-tossed coast of Greece. I am told these are largely families being rescued. My friend identifies himself only as “Quis ut Deus” on the Irish-based Mother of God Forum. Quis ut Deus means, “Who is like unto God” and is recorded as a victory cry of the Archangel, St. Michael, after battle with Lucifer and his minions. Here is his request with a link to the volunteer effort:
“I am going to start this post with a quote from St Francis.
‘Let us begin, brothers, to serve the Lord God, for up to now we have done little or nothing,
For me the above quote screams to my heart,
I have recently been working with the refugee crisis team for Down and Connor (an Irish Catholic Diocese – CJ) and although it has been a little constructive it does not address the urgency that is unfolding before us. When I was young I loved being told the story of the little girl throwing star fish back into the sea, when she was told that it was pointless because there were to many her reply was simple, IF I CAN SAVE JUST ONE.
How ironic that in this present time I have become that little girl but more important each one of us can also be her..
My recent quest sees me working closely with a fellow Belfast man, Joby Fox. His story is below, I come here to ask all to do their utmost in helping Joby in whatever way they can Pray, Donate, Volunteer or share Joby’s facebook page with as many people as you can.
as the opening quote say’s LET US BEGIN…
