In Rome, Mass Celebrated for Intentions of Haiti's People
(21 January 10-RV) The United Nations has praised the Dominican Republic, which shares
the island of Hispaniola with Haiti, for setting up a humanitarian aid corridor from
Santo Domingo to Port-au-Prince. The ambassador to the Holy See from the Dominican
Republic, Victor Grimaldi, also organized a Mass earlier today for the intentions
of the people of Haiti. He said the Pope’s appeal for the Haiti, in which he emphasized
the spiritual comfort of the people, must not be forgotten.
