Mexican cardinal calls for solidarity with Haiti

.- Archbishop of Mexico City, Cardinal Norberto Rivera Carrera, is calling for solidarity with the people of Haiti, echoing the words of Pope Benedict XVI during his Wednesday General Audience asking for immediate help for the nation devastated by the January 12 earthquake.

In a statement published by the Archdiocese of Mexico’s News Service, Cardinal Rivera urged the faithful to “raise their prayers to the Lord our God that this noble nation may find consolation in the faith and the strength necessary to recover from this tragic situation.”

For this reason, the statement said, “the Archdiocese of Mexico City calls on all Catholics to generously assist our suffering brethren.

The cardinal offered his prayers and solidarity to “the Bishops’ Conference of Haiti and to our brethren in Port-au-Prince, as we learn of the damage to the Cathedral, hospitals, housing and government offices.”

“We raise our prayers to the Most Holy Virgin of Guadalupe and her beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, that all may receive the loving sign of their love and protection,” the statement concluded.
