Pope prays for victims of flooding in Peru

(Vatican Radio) At the Angelus on Sunday, Pope Francis assured the people of Peru of his closeness to them, at a time when their country has been struck by “devastating floods.”

Since the beginning of the year more than seventy people have died as a result of intense rains, overflowing rivers, mudslides, and flooding, the worst the nation has seen in more than two decades. More than half of Peru has been affected by the severe weather.

“I pray for the victims” of the flooding, the Holy Father said, “and for those who are committed to providing relief.”
