Pope prays for flood victims in Argentina
April 07, 2017
Pope Francis has expressed his spiritual closeness to the Argentine people as parts of the nation experience torrential downpours.
Entrusting the Argentine people to the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Pope, in a letter to the president of the episcopal conference, spoke of “thousands of people who have had to be evacuated, many of them seeing how they lost everything they had in one moment: home, goods, family memories, the fruit of many years of sacrifice and work.”
