  • Description

    POPE PAUL SAID TODAY (14 DECEMBER) THAT THE HORROR OF FRIDAY'S (12 DECEMBER) FOUR BOMB ATTACKS IN ROME AND MILAN COULD BE A TIMELY AND SALUTARY LESSON TO THE PUBLIC.

    THE POPE TOLD THE PILGRIMS AT HIS TRADITIONAL SUNDAY MID-DAY BLESSING IN ST. PETER'S SQUARE THAT HE JOINED IN PUBLIC GRIEF AND MOURNING FOR THE 14 DEAD AND 107 WOUNDED IN THE 'COWARDLY AND WICKED CRIMES.'
    A TRAUMA SUCH AS THIS CAN REMIND THE PUBLIC OF BETTER IDEALS, GIVE IT A STRONGER AND MORE CONSISTENT PURPOSE IN THE EDUCATION OF THE PEOPLE AND AN APPRECIATION OF THOSE VALUES THAT MAKE IT FREE, CIVILISED, HARMONIOUS, AND CHRISTIAN. IT CAN PROVOKE A SALUTARY AND TIMELY REFLECTION,' HE SAID.

    HE CALLED FOR MEDITATION ABOUT THE ORIGINS OF THE CRIMES AND APPEALED TO THE PUBLIC TO MAKE UP A LITTLE FOR THE EVIL BY DOING GOOD AT CHRISTMAS TIME -- HELPING THE POOR, THE LONELY, THE NEEDY, AND THE SUFFERING.

    'LET THE EGOISM THAT HAS HORRIFIED US BE DISAVOWED BY THE KINDNESS, COMPASSION, AND THE SPIRIT OF GOODNESS AND LOVE,' HE SAID.
