Pope thanks Belgian donors for aid destined to Haiti

Catholic World News - March 11, 2011

Pope Benedict XVI met on March 11 with members of a Belgian charitable group, thanking them for a donation that he said would be used to help relief efforts in Haiti.

The Holy Father told the representatives of the Pro Patri Sede association that he would use their support to assist “those who have recently undergone difficult trials, in particular the people of Haiti.” During Lent, the Pope observed, it is particularly appropriate to show care for those who “struggle againt that which vilifies and degrades the dignity of each person created in the image of God.”
