Pope calls for ‘unanimous condemnation’ of terrorism
March 24, 2016
At his March 23 general audience, Pope Francis renewed his condemnation of terrorism and appealed for prayers for the victims of the Brussels bombings.
“I once again appeal to all people of good will to unite in the unanimous condemnation of these cruel abominations that are causing only death, terror and horror,” he said. "I ask everyone to persevere in prayer and to ask the Lord in this Holy Week to comfort the hearts afflicted and convert the hearts of these people blinded by this cruel fundamentalism.”
