#PopeFrancis "I invite you to join me in prayer..." at #Angelus - 17 New Cardinals named (Full List)

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis during his Angelus address on Sunday prayed for those stricken by Hurricane Matthew, saying “I learned with sorrow of the serious consequences caused by the hurricane which recently hit the Caribbean, especially Haiti, leaving many victims and displaced persons, as well as substantial property damage. I assure my closeness to the people and express confidence in the sense of solidarity of the international community, of Catholic institutions and people of good will. I invite you to join me in prayer for these brothers and sisters, so sorely tried.”
The Holy Father also remembered the beatification on Saturday in Oviedo, Spain of Fr Gennaro Fueyo Castañón and three lay companions. “We praise the Lord”, he said, “ for these heroic witnesses of the faith, combined to ranks of the martyrs that have given their lives in the name of Christ.”
In concluding remarks the Pope greeted all the pilgrims who participated in the Marian Jubilee and thanked them for their presence.
