In Haiti, much was shattered - but not faith

Port-au-Prince, Haiti (CNN) - At 72, Estenio Coutois is frail and almost blind, but he travels from northern Port-au-Prince  to the central city each Sunday to pray at the cathedral.

Without fail.

“I have been coming here since I was a little boy,” he says.

On this Sunday, the sun beats down on him outside the shockingly damaged Cathedral Notre Dame. It was one of the many historic landmarks that crumbled when a massive earthquake struck on January 12.
