Pope prays for Chilean miners
Comment Email Print

In his address to pilgrims at the end of Wednesday's general audience, yesterday,  the Holy Father, speaking Spanish, entrusted the Chilean miners, "to the divine goodness" of Blessed Angela of Foligno.

Pope Benedict XVI has been following the rescue efforts and offered prayers for the miners on several occasions during their 69 days underground. He also sent them each of them a rosary, delivered personally by Cardinal Francisco Javier Errazuriz of Santiago, Chile.

During the audience the Pope also addressed Hungarian pilgrims in their native language, assuring them of his prayers particularly for "the inhabitants of Kolontar who have had to abandon their homes, and of everyone who has been affected by the toxic mud, especially those who have lost their lives".
