Interesting. Are both segments written by the same Franciscan brother?
The second bit was genuinely loving and charitable, except for the last sentence. Maybe he didn't know about what happened at his holy patron St. Francis of Assisi's church, or hear about the earthquake which came later, and that's why he thinks JP2 is very holy?
Or maybe he just does what he's supposed to do, ora et labore, and so he has a heart full of charity, instead of being concerned about the crisis?
