BENEDICT XVI: ANGELUS, WISHING CHINA "MAY GO BACK TO NORMAL"

Supporting "the work of all those who in China, amidst daily efforts, keep believing, hoping, loving, that they may never be afraid of speaking of Jesus to the world and of the world to Jesus”, remaining "always the reliable witnesses” of His love and “keeping stuck to Peter’s rock on which the Church has been built”. This is the request made to Mary, "Help of Christians, Our Lady of Sheshan", at the end of yesterday’s Angelus in Saint Peter’s Square. After saying the Marian prayer, Benedict XVI greeted "with great affection the Chinese-speaking pilgrims", convened in Rome from all over Italy for the World Day of Prayer for the Church in China. "I entrust to God’s merciful love – said the Pontiff – all your fellow countrymen who on these days have been killed by the earthquake which has hit a wide area of your country. I renew my personal sympathy with those who are going through so much distress and suffering". "Through everyone’s fraternal solidarity – wished the Holy Father –, may the populations of those areas soon go back to a normal daily life". ” “
