Holy See, archbishop condemn French school shooting
March 20, 2012
The murder of a rabbi and three children at a Jewish school in Toulouse is “ignoble and shameful” and “arouses deep indignation and bewilderment and the most resolute condemnation,” said Father Federico Lombardi, the director of the Holy See Press Office, as he offered “bereaved families and [the] Jewish community our concern for this horrible deed, and our deepest spiritual solidarity.”
“After the assassination of paratroopers in recent days in Toulouse and Montauban, which has deeply affected our region, a further horrific act took place,” added Archbishop Robert Le Gall of Toulouse. “We express our profound sympathy to families affected by this horror and ensure our prayers.”
