LETTER OF CARDINAL ANGELO SODANO
Your Most Reverend Excellency,
The Supreme Pontiff continues to follow with apprehension the drama of the Peoples of Romania, hit by torrential rains that have caused deaths, devastation and serious damage in this Country.
His Holiness raises fervent prayers for the repose of the souls of all who have lost their lives in this disaster and assures those who are suffering because of the death of their loved ones, who are homeless or who have been forced to leave their possessions and are now in serious difficulty, the assurance of his remembrance in prayer to the Lord.
With these sentiments, as a comfort the Holy Father invokes from God consolation and support for these brothers and sisters and, as a sign of his affection, sends them a special Apostolic Blessing.
Yours most devotedly in the Lord.
Cardinal Angelo Sodano
