The Pope Asks Virgin To Help People Hit By Economic Crisis

2009-04-02

Benedict XVI
Mary teach us to be sympathetic to whomever is in trouble, to balance out the large social differences that are growing increasingly; help us to cultivate an alive sense of the common good, respect for the public, push us to feel this city as the heritage of all, and each of us to do, with knowledge and commitment, our part in building a more just and caring city.

Traditionally, the Pope dedicates his visit to the sick of the Eternal City but this year he prayed especially for those affected by economic crisis.

Benedict XVI
I entrust to Mary the elderly who are lonely, the sick, the immigrants who have difficulties in adapting, the families who have trouble paying their bills and the unemployed.

Benedict XVI greeted the ambassador of Spain, Francisco Vázquez and his family. He also offered the Virgin white roses, a symbol of love and devotion of the Church and the people of Rome.
