Vatican City, 8 February 2012 (VIS) - Following his catechises during this morning's general audience, Benedict XVI launched an appeal for solidarity with victims of the current period of extremely cold weather. "Over recent weeks", he said, "a wave of freezing weather has affected a number of regions in Europe causing great disruption and widespread damage. I wish to express my closeness to the people suffering such extreme meteorological conditions, and ask for prayers for the victims and their families. At the same time, I encourage people to show solidarity that, those affected by these tragic events may receive generous assistance".

  1. Dear Holy Father Benedict,

    Please make the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, in union with all the bishops of the world. Our Lady requested such in 1929 at Tuy, and her wishes still have not been fulfilled.

    If done, as she has asked, we will see the Triumph of her Immaculate Heart and the Reign of Christ the King, and a period of peace will be given to the world. +AMDG+
