Pope Francis on the attack in Pakistan: I implore the Lord to end this persecution

2015-03-16

With a pained expression, Pope Francis once again condemned an attack against Christians. On Sunday, simultaneous explosions rocked two churches in northeastern Pakistan. Estimates indicate that at least 15 died and 75 were wounded in the attack.

POPE FRANCIS
"With pain, with much pain, I received the news of today's terrorist attack against two Churches in the city of Lahore in Pakistan.”

The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack, which was carried out by two suicide bombers.

The Pope asked attendees to pray for the victims and their families. He also called for prayer to end persecution against Christians.

POPE FRANCIS
"Our brothers' and sisters' blood is shed only because they are Christians. While I assure my prayers for the victims and their families, I ask from the Lord, I implore the Lord, the source of all good, to give peace and harmony to that country. And that this persecution against Christians, that the world tries to hide, end and that there may be peace.”

This is one of the bloodiest bombings against Christians in the country's history. In 2013, another suicide bombing killed more than 80 people at a church in Peshawar. Later that year, in the same area, terrorists attacked a military-run school and murdered 132 children.
