October 10, 2016
During his October 9 Angelus address, delivered at the conclusion of the Marian jubilee Mass, Pope Francis requested prayers for victims of Hurricane Matthew.
“I learned with sorrow of the serious consequences caused by the hurricane which recently hit the Caribbean, especially Haiti, leaving many victims and displaced persons, as well as substantial property damage,” he said.
“I assure my closeness to the people and express confidence in the sense of solidarity of the international community, of Catholic institutions and people of good will,” the Pope added. “I invite you to join me in prayer for these brothers and sisters, so sorely tried.”
