Above, hundreds of survivors of Typhoon Haiyan have dinner and rest under candle light in a Redemptorist-run church where they found shelter in Tacloban, Philippines. Nearly two weeks after Super Typhoon Haiyan tore through the central Philippines, Catholic aid workers were still seeing great needs. Below, a man lights a candle Nov. 25 as he pays respects to a deceased relative at a mass grave where victims of Super Typhoon Haiyan are buried near St. Joaquin Church in the province of Leyte, Philippines.
