Pope Francis’ Loses Family Members in Traffic Accident

 

Pope Francis is “profoundly saddened” by the loss of his family members in a recent traffic accident.

According to Vatican Radio, the Holy Father lost his niece by marriage, and two great nieces or nephews, aged two years and eight months. A nephew, Emanuel Boracio Bergoglio, was seriously injured.

Christians know that they will see their loved ones again, which gives us a unique comfort in times like this. At the same time, we also know that they are gone from us for the length of our days in this life. As King David said, “I will go to him. He cannot come to me.”

Let’s pray for the souls of these departed, and for our Holy Father.

    Will pray…and for the husband who is facing awful loss and memories and photos that help and hurt at the same moment.

    May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed rest in peace and may light perpetual shine upon them.

    A sadness and a dilemma. The cardinal archbishop of Buenos Aires could cancel his appointments, spend time with his family, and celebrate the Requiem Mass. The pope has to settle for burning up the telephone lines.
