Papal condolences following plane crash in Mali
Catholic World News - July 28, 2014
Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Vatican’s Secretary of State, has sent condolences on behalf of Pope Francis following an Air Algérie plane crash in Mali that left 118 dead.
The Pope assured the victims’ families of “his deep sympathy during this difficult trial” and prayed that God would “welcome the deceased into his peace and bring comfort and hope to all persons touched by this tragedy,” the prelate said in his July 25 telegram to Archbishop Ghaleb Bader of Algiers.
