VATICAN CITY, 11 MAR 2011 (VIS) - Today in the Consistory Hall, the Pope received members of the Belgian association "Pro Petri Sede" which offers annual financial aid for the needs of the Holy See.

"The generous contribution you make to Peter's Successor", said Benedict XVI, "will enable him to help those who have recently undergone difficult trials, in particular the people of Haiti. The service of charity forms part of the very nature of the Church; it is a living expression of God's solicitude for all humankind. The Church, while bringing vital material assistance, can also offer that attention and love of which people who suffer have such need. I thank you in their name for the help you give them in the struggle against that which vilifies and degrades the dignity of each person, 'created in the image of God'".
