(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis on Wednesday remembered Italian journalist Anna Maria Jacobini, who was discovered having died in her bed in Krakow on Friday. The 58-year-old was covering World Youth Day for RAI, the Italian state broadcaster. She is believed to have died of natural causes.

“ I cannot forget Anna Maria Jacobini, an Italian journalist who died suddenly [in Krakow],” Pope Francis said during his General Audience.

He asked those at the Audience to pray for her, noting she passed away while in the service of her profession.

Jacobini was an expert on the Vatican, and served as a correspondent for RAI’s “A sua immagine,” a weekly Catholic affairs programme.
