Pope condemns church attack on Pakistani Christians

2013-09-23

At the end his visit to Sardinia, with improvised remarks, Pope Francis condemned a suicide bomb attack at a Christian church in Pakistan, where the faithful had gathered for Sunday service. Pope Francis appealed for prayer for the victims. But also demanded something greater.

POPE FRANCIS
"Today, in Pakistan, because of a wrong choice, a decision of hatred, of war, there was an attack in which over 70 people died. This choice cannot stand. It serves nothing. Only the path of peace can build a better world. But if you all will not build it, no one else will. This is the problem, and this is the questions I leave you with: 'Am I willing to take on the path to build a better world?'

A group within the Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack on the Church, in the northern city of Peshawar. The death toll climbed to at least 80 people. As a result of the bombing, protests broke out in several cities, asking the government to do more to protect minorities.
