The Pope prays for the victims of Hurricane Sandy

Via the Telegraph:

Pope Benedict XVI has said a prayer for the victims of Hurricane Sandy which has killed at least 21 people in the Caribbean.

Addressing pilgrims in St. Peter's Square Pope Benedict said:

"I wish to assure those who have been affected by this natural disaster of my closeness and my thoughts
"I invite everyone to pray in solidarity, to alleviate the pain of the families of the victims and to offer support to the thousands affected by the damage."

His comments were met with cheers and chants of "long live the Pope" from the hundreds of people who had gathered in the square to hear his weekly address.
