Pope Francis Opens Door Of Mercy & On Feast Of St. Stephen 1st. Martyr 8 Perish In Texas Tornado & The South Is Plagued With Floods

And the word of the Lord came to me, saying: Thou shalt not take thee a wife, neither shalt thou have thee sons and daughters in this place. For thus saith the Lord concerning the sons and daughters, that are born in this place, and concerning their mothers that bore them: and concerning their fathers, of whom they were born in this land: They shall die by the death of grievous illnesses: they shall not be lamented, and they shall not be buried, they shall be as dung upon the face of the earth: and they shall be consumed with the sword, and with famine: and their carcasses shall be meat for the fowls of the air, and for the beasts of the earth. For thus saith the Lord: Enter not into the house of feasting, neither go thou to mourn, nor to comfort them: because I have taken away my peace from this people, saith the Lord, my mercy and commiserations. Both the great and the little shall die in this land: they shall not be buried nor lamented, and men shall not cut themselves, nor make themselves bald for them. And they shall not break bread among them to him that mourneth, to comfort him for the dead: neither shall they give them to drink of the cup, to comfort them for their father and mother. And do not thou go into the house of feasting, to sit with them, and to eat and drink. For thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: Jer.16

Eight dead in Texas tornado: The South is battered by severe weather for another day as Christmas storm death toll reaches 26

Eight people were killed in Texas the day after Christmas when raging storms and tornadoes blew through the area, according to reports. Five people died near I-30 in Garland, northeast of Dallas, when a large tornado moved through the area, according to Fox4News. All victims were believed to be in their cars, which were likely blown right off the highway. 'It looks like a war zone,' Zach Thompson, Dallas County Health and Human Services Director, told the outlet of Garland. The tornado struck at 6:45pm according to the National Weather Service. Meanwhile, two people died in Copeville and one person in Blue Ridge, an unincorporated town in Collin County, next to Lake Levon. This brings the death toll to 26 across Texas and three other states starting Christmas Eve. About 50,000 people are without power across the Dallas-Fort Worth area, mainly in the eastern cities, according to the outlet. At least two tornadoes were confirmed to have touched down south and east of Dallas beginning at around 6 p.m. local time (7 p.m. E.T.), according to the National Weather Service.
