Benedict XVI: Appeal for Asian Nations

"Dear brothers and sisters, my thoughts go at this time to the people of Asia, especially to the Philippines, the People's Republic of China, hardest hit by violent rains, as well as those of the North-west Iran, hit by a violent earthquake.

These events have caused numerous deaths and injuries, thousands of displaced people and extensive damage. I invite you to join me in prayer for those who have lost their lives and for all the people tried by such devastating calamities. May our solidarity and our support not be lacking to these our brothers and sisters".
