Pope comforts parents of children who have died
January 19, 2011
At his general audience on Wednesday, January 19, Pope Benedict XVI offered special recognition to an Italian group, Figli in paradiso, which offers support to the parents of children who have died.
The Pope urged the parents to "transform your suffering into hope, as Mary did at the foot of the Cross." Then, referring to the way in which many of these parents had lost their children, the Pope made an appeal to young people "to act at all times with prudence and sense of responsibility-- especially when driving a motor vehicle."
