Moscow: Orthodox and Catholic leaders decry terror bombing

Catholic World News - March 31, 2010

Moscow's Orthodox and Catholic leaders, Patriarch Alexei II and Archbishop Paolo Pezzi, each issued statements expressing shock and horror after bombing attacks on the city's commuter-rail system. "Let our response be the unity of our people, their strong will to stop the terrorist and those who support, finance, or justify them," said the Orthodox prelate. Pope Benedict XVI sent his condolences to Russian President Dimitri Medvedev after the bomb attacks, expressing his "profound numerous people lost their lives, I wish to manifest my profound sorrow and firm condemnation for those barbaric acts of violence" and offering his prayers for the victims and their families.
