Let Us Pray  

Our thoughts and our prayers are with the people of Great Britain, especially those in London who experienced the horrific bombings on Thursday.

For those who died, we pray for the peace, rest, and repose of their souls.

For those who lost loved ones, we pray for them to be comforted by Christ as they begin to grieve.

For those who survived the attacks and who may be injured in body and spirit, we pray for them to be healed and comforted by the Lord who is the great Physician.

Through Cardinal Secretary of State Angelo Sodano, the Holy Father has expressed his sympathy to the people of Great Britain in a telegram which was sent to Cardinal Cormac Murphy O'Connor, archbishop of Westminster, Great Britain:
Deeply saddened by the news of the terrorist attacks in central London the Holy Father offers fervent prayers for the victims and for all those who mourn. While he deplores these barbaric acts against humanity he asks you to convey to the families of the injured his spiritual closeness at this time of grief. Upon the people of Great Britain he invokes the consolation that only God can give in such circumstances.
