Pope Francis Condolence to Victims of Bus Crash in French

Following the bus crash that claimed the lives of at least 43 persons in a French-Bus, the Pope sent a consolation message and blessing to the families of the victims. This was sent through a telegram in the Pope’s name by Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Vatican’s Secretary of State. Part of the Telegram reads as follows:

“Pope Francis joins in prayer in the suffering of the bereaved families, and commends the victims to God’s mercy so that He may welcome them in His light,” Cardinal Parolin wrote. “He expresses his spiritual closeness to the injured and to the families of those involved, and to the rescue services. As a pledge of consolation the Holy Father offers his special apostolic blessing to all those affected by the tragedy.”

May the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God, rest in perfect peace…Amen
