Pope Francis remembered today the victims of the heavy rains of recent weeks in Brazil, during prayer in the Vatican.

“I express my solidarity with the people affected by the heavy rains and floods in various regions of Brazil in recent weeks. I pray especially for the victims and their families and for those who lost their homes. May God support the efforts of those who are bringing help”, said the Pontiff.

The Pope’s words were said after the Marian prayer of the Angelus, at noon this Sunday (16).

The rains at the end of 2021 and beginning of this year left dozens of dead, mainly in Bahia and in Minas Gerais.
