Many times I have heard that because of temple on the shores of Thiruchendur, tsunami did not have major impact and there was no loss to people and property. God saved all.
Today sitting at evening mass in “Our Lady of Ransom Shrine”, Kanyakumari, they were making similar reference.
How 400yrs when the Portuguese were on the sea there was heavy thunderstorms. Mother Mary saved them by guiding them to Velankanni shore.
Similarly during tsunami Mother took care that there was no damage to kanyakumari.
If we observe both have same theories only that form of God and religion is different.
This just lays emphasis on the fact that God is one and one only. We humans made different forms and fight over it.
Respect fellow humans and whatever faith they follow. The intent of God is to keep everyone safe.
