· The Pope’s appeal at the Angelus dedicated to the Gospel parables of the Kingdom of God ·
An “international mobilization” to assist the populations of the Horn of Africa and in particular, Somalia, where a “severe drought” – followed in some areas by heavy rain – is creating a true “humanitarian disaster”. The Pope’s appeal came at the end of Sunday’s Angelus, July 17, from the Pontifical Palace at Castel Gandolfo, following the Marian prayer and a meditation dedicated to the Gospel parables of the Kingdom of God.
Dear friends,first of all, an appeal.
With deep concern do I follow the news from the Horn of Africa, particularly Somalia, stricken by a severe drought and, in some areas, even by heavy rains that are causing a humanitarian disaster. Countless people are fleeing from famine in search of food and aid. I hope that international mobilization increases to send timely relief to our brothers and sisters already sorely tried, among whom there are so many children. Let us give our solidarity to these suffering people, together with our tangible support to all people of good will.
