Papal condolences following Taiwan plane crash
Catholic World News - July 24, 2014
Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Vatican’s Secretary of State, has sent condolences on behalf of Pope Francis following a plane crash in Taiwan that left 47 dead.
“The Holy Father learned with sadness of the air accident near Magong airport, and he asks you kindly to convey his heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims and the assurance of his prayers for all affected by this tragedy,” the prelate said in a telegram to Archbishop John Hung Shan-chuan of Taipei. “Upon all he invokes God’s blessings of consolation, strength and peace.”
