Pope Francis 700 4

Pope Francis has expressed lament over the attacks in churches and hotels in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday. He was delivering his homily at the conclusion of his Easter Urbi et Orbi address to the faithful in St. Peter’s Square.

Pope said:

““I was informed with sadness of the news of the serious attacks which, precisely today, on Easter day, have brought pain and mourning in some churches and other meeting places in Sri Lanka.

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. The multiple attacks on churches and hotels around Sri Lanka “have wrought grief and sorrow.

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