Haiti | Trapped seminarian recalls urge to live, calling for God's help

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — The only thing Joseph Pierre-Louis recalls about the massive earthquake that flattened the national seminary in which he was studying is that he had to stay alive. "I can say that it was very terrible," Pierre-Louis, a seminarian of the Hinche Diocese, said at a temporary seminary north of the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince, where he and 270 seminarians from across Haiti are living and studying in 30 large tents. "I was scared. I think that I was dying. The house was destroyed. I heard many, many noises."
