Pope Francis condemns the terrorists attack in Brussels

2016-03-22

The Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, sent a telegram to the Archbishop of Brussels on behalf of the Pope.

Pope Francis trusts "God's mercy” for those who have lost their lives and calls for the comfort and relief to the family and friends of the victims. He "condemns violence,” provoking so much suffering and implores God for the gift of peace.

After this attack, Rome has reinforced security measures at airports and public transportation, but the alert level remains unchanged.

With the arrival of the Jubilee, the Italian government had already launched a special safety device that includes extensive controls, especially in large ceremonies like Easter.

The Vatican has confirmed that the Pope's schedule remains the same and that he will still participate in the major events planned for Holy Week.
