Francis Prays For The Reconstruction Of L'aquila
Vatican City, 2 April 2014 (VIS) - In his greetings following today's general audience, the Pope addressed the group "Jemo Nnanzi" of L'Aquila, five years after the earthquake that devastated the city. "I join in prayer for the many victims, and entrust those who still live in difficult conditions to the protection of Our Lady of Roio. I encourage all to keep their hope alive! May the reconstruction of homes be accompanied by the rebuilding of churches, which are houses of prayer for all, and the recovery of artistic heritage, which is linked to the revival of the area".
