Pope's message of hope for Fort McMurray
On behalf of Bishop Paul Terrio in the Diocese of St. Paul, I am pleased to advise that he has received a message from the Holy Father Pope Francis regarding the Fort McMurray fire disaster.
«The Holy Father was saddened to learn of the destruction and distress caused by the extensive fires around Fort McMurray, and he assures you of his prayers for all the displaced, especially the children, who have lost their homes and livelihoods. He asks God to bless civil authorities and those coordinating evacuation and shelter for the homeless, as well as for strength and perseverance for all who are battling the fires. Upon those affected by this ongoing disaster, the Holy Father invokes the Lord's blessing of patience, faith and hope.”
