Leopoldo González González, archbishop of Acapulco, Mexico, expressed his closeness to those affected by Hurricane Otis in Mexico and called on the faithful to help the victims, noting that each person is “God’s provident hand” in working together with those most in need in the face of the emergency that began on Oct. 25 when the hurricane made landfall.
In a statement González read Oct. 29 in a video posted on the archdiocese’s Facebook page, he thanked Pope Francis for his concern for the situation there.
After thanking the Mexican Bishops’ Conference for the campaign undertaken to help those affected, the archbishop said that at this moment, “each of us is God’s provident hands for our brothers in need. Maybe what we can do to reach out seems little to us, but let’s not stop doing it, it’s very valuable.”
“In these moments of crisis and difficulty, may the best in each person come forward for the good of all,” he urged.
