Pope prays for Philippine storm victims

2012-12-08 Vatican Radio

(Vatican Radio) Below is a Vatican Radio translation of the Pope's prayers for the people of the Philippines.
I would first like to assure you of my closeness to the population of the Philippines hit in recent days by a violent storm. I pray for the victims, for their families and for the many displaced people. May faith and brotherly love give them the strength to face this difficult trial.
