Pope Francis recently took to social media to air his message to victims of recent typhoons that hit the Philippines.
KAMI learned that in a Twitter post, the pontiff said he prays for the typhoon victims in the country.
The current leader of the Roman Catholic Church furthermore expressed solidarity with Filipinos affected by the disaster and individuals aiding help to them.
“I am near in prayer to the dear people of the #Philippines who are suffering because of the destruction, and especially because of the flooding caused by a strong #typhoon. I express my solidarity to the poorest families and those who are doing all they can to help them.”
Filipino Twitter users then thanked the pope for his tweet:
“Thank you @Pontifex.. Filipino people are suffering right now .. The Covid .. The typhoons .. We don't know how we can survived all of this tragedy .. But we know God is with us .. We get through this .. #Filipinosarestrong #BangonPilipinas.”
“Thank you for your thoughts and prayers for the typhoon and flood victims in the Philippines specifically those in Cagayan, Tuguegarao, and Isabela. May they receive aid and relief very soon.”
“Thank you for your prayers and support @Pontifex. The Filipino people have survived so many natural disasters & difficulties by leaning on our faith despite the poverty and lack of resources. Filipinos can still smile & live well despite of the adversities because of prayers.”
Pope Francis was born on December 17, 1936 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He became a Catholic priest in 1969, and in 2013, he was elected as the pope.
Pope Francis has recently become the first pontiff to endorse civil unions for homophobic couples as an alternative to marriages. The pontiff endorsed civil union law while being interviewed for the feature-length documentary “Francesco”.
Months ago, the Vatican denied the speculations that Pope Francis has COVID-19. This is after an online post claimed that the pope has been infected by the deadly virus.
