Pope Francis on October 11, 2020, offered prayers for those suffering from the fires around the world, especially in California.

His remarks came after praying the noonday Angelus with the faithful gathered in St. Peter’s Square.

“I would like to express my closeness to the populations impacted by the fires that are devastating so many regions of the planet, as well as to the volunteers and firefighters who risk their lives to extinguish the blazes,” the Pope said. “I am thinking of the West Coast of the United States, particularly California, and I am also thinking of the central regions of South America, to the Panatal zone of Paraguay, to the banks of the Paraná River in Argentina.

Praise the Lord
