“I am grieved by the terrorist attacks of these last days in Somalia, Afghanistan and yesterday in New York,” Pope Francis said in remarks on in St. Peter’s Square following the Angelus on November 1, 2017, the Feast of All Saints.”

“In deploring such acts of violence, I pray for the deceased, for the wounded and their families. Let us ask the Lord to convert the hearts of terrorists and to free the world from the hatred and murderous madness that abuses the name of God to disseminate death.”
