Pope voices shock over Colorado theater killings

Catholic World News - July 23, 2012

Pope Benedict XVI said that he was profoundly shocked by the "senseless violance which took place in Aurora, Denver," where a lone gunman opened fire on a movie audience.

Speaking at the close of his regular public audience on Sunday, July 22, the Pope also lamented "the loss of life in the recent ferry disaster near Zanzibar." He said that in both cases he shares "the distress of the families and friends of the victims and the injured." The Pope offered his blessing "as a pledge of consolation and strength in the risen Lord."
