Il cordoglio del Santo Padre per le vittime dell’attentato in una moschea sufi nel Sinai settentrionale (Egitto), 24.11.2017

Pubblichiamo di seguito il telegramma di cordoglio che il Santo Padre Francesco ha inviato, a firma del Cardinale Segretario di Stato, Pietro Parolin, per le vittime dell’attentato terroristico avvenuto oggi nella moschea sufi al-Rawda di Bir al-Abed, a ovest della città di Arish, nel Sinai settentrionale:


His Holiness Pope Francis was profoundly grieved to learn of the great loss of life caused by the terrorist attacks on the Rawda mosque in North Sinai. In expressing his solidarity with the Egyptian people at this hour of national mourning, he commends the victims to the mercy of the Most High God and invokes divine blessings of consolation and peace upon their families. In renewing his firm condemnation of this wanton act of brutality directed at innocent civilians gathered in prayer, His Holiness joins all people of good will in imploring that hearts hardened by hatred will learn to renounce the way of violence that leads to such great suffering, and embrace the way of peace.

Cardinal Pietro Parolin
Secretary of State
