To His Excellency

Your Excellency,

 

On behalf of the Pontifical Council for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerant People, I express my grief and deep sympathy at the news of the loss of the ferry on the night of the 2nd/3rd August.

 

Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have perished, are still missing and with the injured. We remember especially the grieving families, who will never see their loved ones again in this world and we pray for the success of the rescue operations.

 

In prayer and solidarity, I am

Sincerely yours in Christ
