Message in regard to the Chilean earthquake (February 27, 2010)

Following the earthquake and tidal wave that affected a good part of Chile and cost the lives of hundreds of people, in addition to major property damage, the Prelate of Opus Dei sent a letter to the faithful and cooperators of the Work in that country, asking especially for their generous suffrages for the victims of the natural disasters and saying that he is asking many other people to do the same. He wrote: “I also pray, and ask everyone to pray with me, for the people who have been injured and have suffered material losses. Let us implore God that those who are suffering not lose hope.”

In a special way, he invited the faithful and cooperators of Opus Dei to put themselves at the service of their fellow citizens, with their own work and their prayers. And whenever possible, to “join in the relief effort” organized by the government, the Church, and social agencies. In this situation of extreme need, the Prelate especially encouraged “young people to help implement whatever measures the country's authorities are taking.”

“I ask our Lord to sustain everyone,” the Prelate wrote, “including the relief workers. Let us see this as a marvelous opportunity to fulfill the mandate of charity that Jesus preached. We must always practice an ardent charity among those close to us, truly loving everyone.”
