The Romanian Patriarchate is solidary with the Italian people, afflicted after the earthquake of August 24, 2016

As a sign of deep compassion with the afflicted by the earthquake which occurred in Perugia (central Italy) that claimed many lives and caused great damages, the Romanian Patriarchate addresses a message of Christian solidarity with the Italian people, on behalf of the clergy and the faithful of the Romanian Orthodox Church.

 

In sign of fraternal solidarity, we urge the Romanians living in Italy and, especially, those in the area affected by this earthquake (the city of Amatrice) to assist the suffering families, bringing them spiritual consolation and material aid by word and deed, in accordance to their possibilities.

In the face of the fear caused by earthquakes, we pray to God for the rest of the souls of the deceased and the recovery of those injured in the earthquake, but also for being delivered from other dangers.
