Sure he does...If the earthquake had occured more to the south, he will be the one praying for nothing.
He should be careful, an Earthquake in the Vatican, well let´s just say that to religions that is a punishment from God.
And will be my finest hour yet...
Wouldn't it have been nice for him to pray to his god to actually prevent the earthquake in the first place?
The "government" ordered the seizmologists to stay mum, as there were precursors of a big one...they wanted to evacuate the people...but were told not to cause a panic....(wonder if the Vatican weighed in on that decision.)
Hid God wouldn´t listen anyway
