After saying the traditional Angelus prayer this Sunday (2) in the Vatican, Pope Francis dedicated a few words of solidarity to the people of Nicaragua after Friday’s attack on the Cathedral of Managua.
“Dear brothers and sisters, I think of the people of Nicaragua who are suffering from the attack on the Cathedral of Managua, where the much-venerated image of Christ, which has accompanied the lives of the faithful for centuries, has been badly damaged, almost destroyed,” said the pontiff. .
“Dear Nicaraguan brothers, I am with you and I pray for you,” he added.
On Friday, a Molotov bomb attack set fire to the chapel of the Cathedral of Managua, which houses the Blood of Christ and the Blessed Sacrament, an image much venerated by Nicaraguan Catholics.
