Papal condolences for Mexican hurricane victims

Catholic World News - September 19, 2013

Pope Francis has conveyed his sympathies to the Mexican victims of Hurricane Ingrid.

In a message to Cardinal Francisco José Robles Ortega of Guadalajara, the president of the Mexican bishops’ conference, the Pope promised “fervent prayers for the eternal repose of the deceased” in the wake of a storm that claimed more than 55 lives and left over 8,000 people homeless. The Pope’s message—sent in the form of a telegram from the Secretary of State, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone—offered condolences to the families of the victims and to those injured by the storm.
