Pope prays for victims, encourages aid workers

Pope Benedict XVI is praying for the victims of Japan’s earthquake and tsunami and has praised the “dignity and courage” with which the Japanese are coping with the tragedy, the Canadian Press informs. Benedict also encouraged aid workers who are bringing comfort to those afflicted, saying God was with them. He made the comments, in Italian and English, during his traditional Sunday blessing from his studio window overlooking St. Peter’s Square.
