Haiti - Religion : «I fear that Haiti will fall into a pit of despair» dixit Pope Francis
According to the Jesuit magazine "La Civiltà Cattolica", Pope Francis during a private interview during his recent trip to Quebec with 15 members of the Society of Jesus, questioned by a Haitian Jesuit on what they can do so that the Church of Haiti does not lose hope, replied "[...] I feel very close to Haiti, because I am constantly informed of the situation by some priests of my friends [...] Haiti is currently experiencing a critical situation, a ordeal, as if we couldn't find the right way" adding "[...] I don't believe that the international organizations have understood how to do it [...] I fear that Haiti will fall into a pit of despair. »

Pope Francis concluded "[...] how can we help Haiti to grow in hope ?" If there is anything we can do as a Church, it is certainly to pray and do penance... But we must ask ourselves how we can help ? Haiti is a noble people [...]"

This is not the first time that Pope Francis has expressed his closeness and assured his prayers for Haiti https://www.icihaiti.com/en/news-35136-icihaiti-religion-pope-francis-asks-not-to-abandon-haiti.html
