Members of the Legion of Mary in Malawi are set to pray the Holy Rosary in favor of the victims of Tropical Cyclone Freddy during the month of October.
Members of the Episcopal Conference of Malawi (ECM) are making their periodic visit to the Holy See, during which they are to pray at the tombs of St. Peter and St. Paul, and have an audience with Pope Francis on the status of the people of God in the Southeastern African nation and “their ecclesial mission”.
Hundreds of thousands of people affected by Tropical Cyclone Freddy in Southern Africa are facing hunger and starvation, the Catholic Bishop of Quelimane Diocese in Mozambique has said, noting that many in his Episcopal See are already dying of cholera amid other devastating effects of the cyclone.
The Local Ordinary of the Catholic Diocese of Ndola in Zambia is appealing for donations among the people of God in his Episcopal See in view of reaching out to those affected by the Tropical Cyclone Freddy in Malawi where at least 300 people have lost their lives.
Pope Francis has expressed his prayerful solidarity with the people of God in Malawi following the devastating effects of Tropical Cyclone Freddy, which has reportedly claimed the lives of at least “400 people in Malawi, Mozambique and Madagascar since it first made landfall in Africa”, according to Reuters.
