Pope's angelus: praying for areas affected by Hurricane Sandy

Full text: appeal of the Holy Father, Benedict XVI, for those affected by Hurricane Sandy

In recent days, a devastating hurricane struck Cuba, Haiti, Jamaica and the Bahamas with particular violence, causing several deaths and enormous damage, and forcing many people to leave their homes. I wish to assure you of my closeness and my recollection of those who have been affected by this natural disaster, while I invite everyone to prayer and solidarity, in order to alleviate the pain of the families of the victims and offer support to the thousands of people who have been hurt in various ways by the storm.
