Pray for quake-torn Haiti, Pope says

This just in from the Catholic News Service, the Pope Benedict XVI turned his thoughts to the victims of the catastrophic earthquake in Haiti today:

“I invite everyone to join in my prayer to the Lord for the victims of this catastrophe and for those who are mourning their loss. I assure my spiritual closeness to people who have lost their homes and to all those affected in various ways by this calamity, imploring from God consolation and relief of their suffering,” he said.

Caritas Internationalis, the Vatican-based umbrella organization for Catholic charities, said it was mobilizing to provide immediate assistance to Haiti. On Jan. 13 it had already assembled an emergency relief team to fly to Haiti to assist Caritas members already working in the country. It said there had not yet been contact with the Haitian Caritas office

The US based Catholic Relief Services are already working on collecting help and getting it to Haiti, here
