Posted by admin - 23/04/19 06:47AM - - 1/52/53/54/55/5

At Mass this Wednesday we will pray for the victims of the bombings on Easter Sunday. In solidarity with the wounded and their families and all those whose lives are touched by the tragedy.

Pope Francis said: “I have learned with sadness the news of the grave attacks that, precisely today, the day of Easter, have brought mourning and suffering in some churches and other places of rest in Sri Lanka. I wish to manifest my affectionate closeness to the Christian community there, hit while they were gathered in prayer, and to the victims of such cruel violence. I entrust to the Lord all those who have tragically died, and I pray for the injured who are suffering because of this dramatic event.”
