Francis prays for the victims of the Lampedusa tragedy

Vatican City, 11 February 2015 (VIS) – “I follow with concern the news from Lampedusa, where there have been deaths among immigrants due to the cold during the Mediterranean crossing. I offer the assurance of my prayers for the victims and again encourage solidarity so that those affected do not lack the necessary aid”, said the Holy Father following the catechesis of today's general audience.

The Pope also invited prayer for the upcoming Consistory, so that “the Holy Spirit might assist in the work of the College of Cardinals and enlighten the new Cardinals and their service to the Church”.
