Pope Francis condemns acts of terror in Sri Lanka

Pope Francis, during the conclusion of his Easter Urbi et Orbi, has condemned the acts of terror that took place in Sri Lanka this Easter Sunday.

“I wish to express my heartfelt closeness to the Christian community [of Sri Lanka], wounded as it was gathered in prayer, and to all the victims of such cruel violence.”

“I entrust to the Lord all those who have tragically perished and I pray for the injured and all those who suffer as a result of this tragic event,” the Pope stated further.

Pope Francis expressed these words of solidarity to the faithful masses gathered at the St. Peter’s Square today (21).
