Message regarding the earthquake in Emilia-Romagna, Italy (May 22, 2012)

Upon returning to Rome after a brief trip, I was made aware of the extent of the damage caused by the earthquake that has struck the provinces of Modena and Ferrara. I am writing these lines in order to be even closer to my children and their relatives who may be affected.

As soon as I received the news through the media, I entrusted to our Lord all those who have lost their lives, their families, the injured and anyone who has suffered moral or material damage.

I have also gone to the intercession of St. Josemaría, with whom I myself traveled several times through this region. I prayed for all those living there, asking that the damage and losses might be limited, although we all know—even when we find it hard to comprehend—that God always continues to assist us with the heart of a Father.

I beseech our Heavenly Mother to give strength to the rescuers and those who are assisting in the plans of intervention arranged by the authorities, and that she help everyone not to lose hope.

I send my blessing, united as always to that of St. Josemaria and our beloved Don Álvaro.
