Vatican City: January 18, 2010. (CNA).After praying the Angelus on Sunday, Pope Benedict XVI remembered those affected by the earthquake in Haiti.

He prayed that patroness of Haiti, the Virgin Mary, protect and assist them so that they might "find aid and comfort."
The Holy Father mentioned that through contact with the Apostolic Nuncio, Archbishop Bernardito Auza, he is keeping "constantly informed" as to the situation on the ground in the island country. Pope Benedict said that he heard from Archbishop Auza of the death of Archbishop of Port-au-Prince Serge Miot, and so many other priests, religious and seminarians.
Pope Benedict assured the charitable organizations who are "taking charge of the immense need of the country" that they have his support.
"I pray for the injured, for the homeless and for everyone who has tragically lost their life," he said.
Following the Angelus, as Benedict XVI addressed the French-speaking pilgrims, he entrusted the care of the "dear Haitian population" to the protection of the Holy Virgin in their current trials, so that they might "find aid and comfort."
The Pope finished by exclaiming in prayer, "May Our Lady of Perpetual Help, patroness of Haiti, protect her children!"
