Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Vatican’s Secretary of State, has sent a telegram of condolence in Pope Francis’s name following a train collision in Puglia, Italy, that left 23 dead.

Assuring the region’s leading bishop of “fervent prayers of suffrage for those who have died tragically,” the Pope asked the Lord for “a rapid recovery for the injured” and entrusted to “the maternal protection of the Virgin Mary those who have been afflicted by this dramatic event.”
