CWN Editor's Note: The papal telegram, written in French, was addressed to Strasbourg’s archbishop. On December 11, a terrorist, shouting “Allahu akbar” (Allah is great), killed three and injured 13 during an attack on the Christmas market in front of Strasbourg Cathedral (photograph). Strasbourg is a city of 275,000 in eastern France and headquarters of the European Parliament, which Pope Francis visited in 2014.
