2016-03-23

(ONLY VIDEO) During the general audience, Pope Francis spoke "with heavy heart” of the attacks in Brussels. He called for a "unanimous condemnation” and prayers for the victims and terrorists for God to "convert the hearts of these people blinded by fundamentalism.”

POPE FRANCIS
"With aching heart, I followed the sad news of the terrorist attacks that took place yesterday in Brussels, which have caused numerous victims and wounded. I assure my prayers and closeness to the beloved people of Belgium, all relatives of the victims and to the wounded. I call on all people of good will to join in the unanimous condemnation of this abominable cruelty that is causing only death, terror and horror.”

All I ask from you all is to persevere in prayer and ask the Lord during this Holy Week to comfort the afflicted hearts and convert the hearts of these people blinded by cruel fundamentalism. Through the intercession of the Virgin Mary pray: Hail Mary ...
Now, in silence, we pray for the dead, the injured, the relatives and all the Belgium people.”
