The Jakarta Post
Pope Francis prayed for victims of three church bombings in Surabaya, East Java, on Sunday in St. Peter's Square, Vatican City.
The pope addressed “dear people of Indonesia,” and especially Christians in Surabaya, saying he was praying for the victims and their loved ones.
As of May 13 at 7 p.m., the death toll had reached 13, while 41 others were injured.
“Together,” he said as quoted by vaticannews.va, “let us call upon the God of peace, that He might bring these violent actions to an end; and that in the hearts of all, space might be found for feelings, not of hatred and violence, but of reconciliation and fraternity.” (evi)
