Pope Francis condemned Easter Sunday attacks in Sri Lanka and said that he would be praying for all those who were suffering from the bloodshed, agency reports which quoted the Vatican said yesterday.
Pope Francis appealed for prayers for those who were affected by the blasts in Sri Lanka at the end of his traditional Easter Sunday blessing.
Speaking from the loggia of St. Peter’s Basilica, Francis said:
“I want to express my loving closeness to the Christian community, targeted while they were gathered in prayer and all the victims of such cruel violence.”
“I entrust to the Lord all those who were tragically killed and pray for the injured and all those who are suffering as a result of this dramatic event,” he added.
