ROMA (ACI) - El Cardenal Vegli艌 envi贸 el 13 de noviembre una carta a ACI Prensa y otros medios de comunicaci贸n para difundir la campa艅a especial de recogida de fondos para los afectados en el pa铆s asi谩tico.

"Muchos de nuestros capellanes han celebrado Misas de sufragio por los fallecidos y han ayudado a los mar铆timos a dar sentido a tanta devastaci贸n y angustia", afirma y env铆a "nuestras oraciones y nuestra solidaridad a todos los marinos filipinos, que est谩n a miles de kil贸metros de distancia de sus seres queridos, sin saber de su suerte", asegur贸 el Purpurado en la nota.

"Una vez m谩s, hemos contemplado la potencia devastadora de la naturaleza que, en menos de un mes, ha golpeado dos veces la misma zona de Filipinas. Los muertos se cuentan por miles, mientras que los supervivientes luchan por reorganizar lo que queda de sus vidas", lament贸 el Cardenal Vegli艌.

"Felicitamos a muchos de nuestros Centros del Apostolado del Mar en el mundo que han aportado tarjetas telef贸nicas y acceso gratuito a internet para permitirles comunicarse con sus familias", a艅adi贸.

El dicasterio vaticano a trav茅s del 贸rgano "Apostolado del Mar", en colaboraci贸n con la compa艅铆a de cruceros "Carnival", envi贸 capellanes cat贸licos a bordo de algunas de sus naves para apoyar las tripulaciones filipinas.

La gran familia del Apostolado del Mar expres贸 que desean manifestar su cercan铆a y solidaridad al pueblo filipino, y por ello, el Pontificio Consejo para la Pastoral de los Emigrantes e Itinerantes, invit贸 a contribuir en un fondo especial, aportando una primera donaci贸n inicial de diez mil d贸lares.

El fondo financiar谩 proyectos de reconstrucci贸n a largo plazo, que se realizar谩n en colaboraci贸n con el Apostolado del Mar de Filipinas, a beneficio de la gente del mar de las 谩reas afectadas despu茅s de las primeras semanas de emergencia, para volver a la vida "normal".

"Agradecer铆amos que dierais a este mensaje la mayor difusi贸n posible, y ya desde ahora manifestamos nuestra sincera gratitud por el apoyo y la generosidad, al tiempo que imploramos de Mar铆a, Stella Maris, la bendici贸n para esta iniciativa", concluy贸.
