· Mexico under water ·
The situation in Mexico is proving to be more dramatic than once thought. The tropical storm Miguel on the west coast and hurricane Ingrid on the east coast have been producing unprecedented effects for the country this week. It is a tragedy which is receiving little media attention and less attention than other phenomenon which are perhaps less strong. The intense rain brought by Miguel has caused, among other things, a landslide from the mountain above the village of La Pintada, in the southwestern state of Guerrero. Pope Francis expressed a message of solidarity to the Mexican people in a telegram signed by Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, Secretary of State, and addressed to Cardinal Francisco Robles Ortega, Archbishop of Guadalajara and President of the Bishops Conference of Mexico. Francis Pope prays that God will console those who suffer these great calamities and “increase in all people of good will sentiments of fraternal solidarity in order to collaborate in reconstructing the affected areas and to effectively help those who are in pain and despair”.
