Pope prays for 9-11 victims, condemns terrorism

Catholic World News - September 12, 2011

Pope Benedict XVI called attention to the 10th anniversary of the 9-11 terrorist attacks during his regular midday audience on Sunday, offering his prayers for the deceased and an appeal for peace.

After leading the Angelus prayer, the Pope said:

Today, our thoughts also go to September 11 ten years ago. In entrusting the victims of the terrorist attacks on that day and their families to the Lord of Life, I invite the leaders of nations and men of good will to always refuse violence as the solution to problems, to resist the temptation toward hatred and to work in society, inspired by the principles of solidarity, justice and peace.
