Pope remembers victims of Nazi massacre
Catholic World News - August 13, 2014
Seven decades after Nazi forces shot 560 Italian villagers and refugees, including 130 children, Pope Francis remembered in the victims of the Sant’Anna di Stazzema massacre.
“The Pope invokes the Prince of Peace, that He might strengthen the common commitment to a fraternal coexistence of peoples and nations,” the Vatican’s Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, said in a telegram to the archbishop of Pisa. “He entrusts the families of the victims, and all the inhabitants of those places that have been so sorely tried, to the maternal comfort of the Blessed Virgin.”
