Pope offers special message on behalf of all kidnapping victims

.- At the conclusion of the Angelus prayer this Sunday in St. Peter’s Square, Pope Benedict XVI offered a special prayer for those around the world, who are victims of kidnapping.

The Pope told the gathered crowd that he receives numerous requests to intervene on behalf of people, “who, in different parts of the world, are victims of kidnapping."
 
"Reiterating my firm condemnation of this crime, I give assurances of my recollection in prayer for all the victims and their families and friends,” the Pope said.

“In particular, I endorse the urgent appeal recently sent to me by the archbishop and the community of Sassari, Italy, in favor of Giovanni Battista Pinna,  kidnapped on September 14, that he may soon be restored to his loved ones."
