Vatican condemns Terrorist Attacks in Paris prays for Victims

Following the deadly terrorist attack that claimed over 120 lives at Paris, France, on Friday night, Nov. 13, 2015, the Holy See Press Office in a statement released Saturday, November 14 2015 has sympathized with the French government and prayed for the victims. 

In the statement, the Holy See Press Office said: “Here in the Vatican we are following the terrible news from Paris. We are shocked by this new manifestation of maddening, terrorist violence and hatred which we condemn in the most radical way together with the Pope and all those who love peace. We pray for the victims and the wounded, and for all the French people. This is an attack on peace for all humanity, and it requires a decisive, supportive response on the part of all of us as we counter the spread of homicidal hatred in all of its forms.”

Cardinal André Vingt-Trois, the Archbishop of Paris, has announced that he will celebrate Mass in Notre Dame Cathedral on Sunday evening for the victims, their families and the whole of France. The bells of Notre Dame are expected to ring out 15 minutes before the Mass begins.
