Papal Message to Earthquake Victims

“We all Want to Work Together to Help You”

MILAN, June 4, 2012 (Zenit.org).- Here is a translation of a message Benedict XVI gave in Milan to the victims of the earthquake in Emilia-Romagna at the VII World Meeting of Families.

* * *

Dear friends, you know that we feel your sorrow deeply; and, above all, I pray every day that this earthquake will finally end. We all want to work together to help you: be certain that we have not forgotten you, that each of us is doing what we can to help you – Caritas, all of the Church’s organizations, the state, the different communities – each of us wants to help you, spiritually in our prayer, in the nearness of our heart, and materially, and I pray insistently for you. May God help you and all of us! Greetings to you, may the Lord bless you!
