    2015-04-26 Vatican Radio

    (Vatican Radio) On Sunday, Pope Francis remembered the victims of the recent earthquake in Nepal which has claimed the lives of nearly 2,000 people.

    After the recitation of the Regina Coeli prayer with the crowds gathered in Saint Peter?s Square, the Holy Father expressed his ?closeness to the populations struck by a powerful earthquake in Nepal and neighbouring countries.?

    The Pope said: ?I pray for the victims, for the wounded, and for all those who suffer because of this calamity.?
    Pope Francis said of those affected by the disaster: ?May they be supported by fraternal solidarity.

    "Safety and security don't just happen, they are the result of collective consensus and public investment. We owe our children, the most vulnerable citizens in our society, a life free of violence and fear."
    -Nelson Mandela
