VATICAN - Pope urges international solidarity for Haiti [AN]

Appeal of Benedict XVI for the population of the island that was devastated by an earthquake. In his general audience he speaks of Franciscans and Dominicans. They were able to respond to the challenges that the Church had to face. Even today “sensitivity to poverty and solidarity, that believers offer with courageous choices” and “the world willingly listens to teachers, when they are also witnesses,” a “lesson” not to forget in the work of spreading the Gospel.
