Cardinal Vincent has written to Fr Andrea Fulco, the Parish Priest of the Italian Church in Clerkenwell, reassuring the community of his prayers for the victims of the earthquake in Italy on Wednesday. In the letter sent on 26 August, he writes:

'I am writing to assure you and the Italian Church of my solidarity in prayer for all those who died or were injured following the recent earthquake and after shocks in central Italy.

'On this Feast day of Blessed Dominic of the Mother of God, who was himself a priest from central Italy, I pray especially for his intercession as your nation comes to terms with such devastation and loss.

'Please be assured too of the prayers of the Catholic Community in England and Wales. We pray for the eternal repose of all who have died and for those affected by the earthquake and aftershocks.'
