You Caused The Misery You Might As Well “Participate In The Family's Suffering.”
Manila, Philippines, Jan 17, 2015 / 04:55 am (CNA/EWTN News).- A local woman was killed at an airport near Tacloban, Philippines where Pope Francis had just celebrated Mass for thousands of people amid strong winds and rain brought on by Tropical Storm Amang.
“The Pope has been informed about the death of our young friend” when he returned to the nunciature, said head of the Holy See Press office, Fr. Federico Lombardi, during a press briefing on Jan. 17 a few hours after the incident.
Fr. Lombardi added that the Holy Father requested additional information on the family so he could demonstrate his “participation in their suffering.”
During the briefing, prayers were asked for the soul of the 21-year-old woman who died shortly after the Mass with Pope Francis when the scaffolding of a speaker near the altar fell on her.
Between 200-300,000 people braved harsh weather conditions to attend the open air Mass on Saturday morning with the Pope, who is there as part of his Jan. 12-19 tour of Sri Lanka and the Philippines.
Director of social communications for the Palo archdiocese, Fr. Amadeo Alvero, told reporters earlier in the day that the crowds of people had nothing to do with the incident, adding: “We are sorry that this had to happen.”
Weather concerns forced Pope Francis to cut short his visit by four hours to Letye island, where Tacloban is the largest city.
The Pope was in Letye to meet personally with survivors of super typhoon Haiyan, which devastated the Philippines in 2013, and other disasters which have struck the region.
“In the year 1864, Lucifer together with a large number of demons will be unloosed from hell; they will put an end to faith little by little, even in those dedicated to God. They will blind them in such a way, that, unless they are blessed with a special grace, these people will take on the spirit of these angels of hell; several religious institutions will lose all faith and will lose many souls.Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
Several will abandon the faith, and a great number of priests and members of religious orders will break away from the true religion; among these people there will even be bishops. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
