Pope prays for those affected by Hurricane Sandy

2012-10-29

BENEDICT XVI
"I wish to assure you of my closeness and my recollection of those who have been affected by this natural disaster, while I invite everyone to prayer and solidarity, in order to alleviate the pain of the families of the victims and offer support to the thousands of people who have been hurt.”

While reflecting on Sunday's Gospel, the Pope also referred to the conclusion of the bishop's synod. Specifically, he talked about the role faith should play in carrying out the New Evangelization.

BENEDICT XVI
"In today’s Gospel, Jesus grants sight to the blind man with the words: "Your faith has saved you”. As we mark the end of the Synod on the new evangelization, let us renew both our faith in Christ and our commitment to the spread of his Gospel of healing and joy.”

With thousands of people in St. Peter's Square, the Pope also explained that the New Evangelization, is not an invention, but mostly a renewal, since the purpose of the Church has always been to spread the Gospel.
