The Vatican condemns deadly knife attack in Nice, France

The Vatican has joined the chorus of condemnation over Thursday’s barbaric knife attack at a cathedral in Nice, France.

The Roman Catholic Church put out a statement denouncing the terror attack, which left three dead, saying it “sowed death in a place of love and consolation,” the Vatican said in a statement.

“Informed of the savage attack that was perpetrated this morning in a church in Nice, causing the death of several innocent people, His Holiness Pope Francis joins in prayer with the suffering of the families who were affected and shares their sorrow,”  the statement said.

“Today’s attack has sown death in a place of love and consolation, like the house of the Lord,” the statement said.

“[The Pope] prays for the victims and their loved ones, so that the violence may cease, so that we may return to look upon ourselves as brothers and sisters and not as enemies, so that the beloved people of France, united, may respond to evil with good.”

Leaders throughout the world have joined in condemning the murders, for which a suspect was shot and taken into custody at the scene.

“Our hearts are with the people of France. America stands with our oldest Ally in this fight,” President Trump tweeted.

“These Radical Islamic terrorist attacks must stop immediately. No country, France or otherwise can long put up with it!”
