Coptic Christians Killed in Egypt

Ramadan begins with death.

More Christians have been slaughtered.

Pope Francis condemned the attack.
He was “deeply saddened” at the news of “the tragic loss of life and injury caused by this senseless act of hatred” and “expresses his heartfelt solidarity with all those affected by this violent outrage” and especially “those children who lost their lives,” the Vatican secretary of state, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, said in a telegram on the pope’s behalf to Egypt’s president, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi.

The pope commends “the souls of the deceased to the mercy of the Almighty” and “assures their grieving families and all who have been injured of his ardent prayers,” the cardinal wrote.

The message concluded saying Pope Francis “pledges his continued intercession for peace and reconciliation throughout the nation.”

Egypt responded to the attack.
