To all those Italian drivers, the Pope says “drive safe”, from the Vatican:
I extend warm greetings to all the English-speaking pilgrims and visitors present at today’s Angelus. May your time in Rome be filled with divine blessings of joy and peace. On this third Sunday of November, we remember in a special way all those who have died as a result of traffic accidents. We pray for their eternal rest and for the consolation of their families who grieve their loss. Dear brothers and sisters, I implore everyone – drivers, passengers and pedestrians – to heed carefully the words of Saint Paul in the Liturgy of the Word today: “stay sober and alert”. Our behavior on the roads should be characterized by responsibility, consideration and a respect for others. May the Virgin Mary lead us safely along streets and highways throughout the world.
