POPE “DEEPLY PAINED” AT RECENT TERROR ACTS

After praying the Angelus with the faithful in St. Peter’s Square today, November 1, feast of All Saints, Pope Francis spoke of his pain at recent terror attacks. He said, “Dear Brothers and Sisters, I am deeply pained for the terror attacks of recent days in Somalia, Afghanistan and yesterday in New York. While I deplore such acts of violence, I pray for the deceased, for the wounded and for their family members. Let us ask the Lord to convert the hearts of terrorists and free the world from hatred and mad killings that abuse the name of God and sow death.” (file photo)
