Praying for rain

Sunday, 15 April, 2012

“Cardinal Giuseppe Betori of Florence is leading prayers for rain as much of Italy struggles with a severe drought.” So reported Corriere della Sera at the end of March. “The shortage of rain during the winter months has created a problem for central and northern Italy, and experts say that even normal rainfall in the next several weeks would leave the region with a significant deficit during the summer.” The outlook is grim for our friends, the parched frogs of Bolzano (Bozen).
