Pope Francis urged the world to use “weapons of love” to combat evil following the Brussels attacks.
The Mirror reported:
Pope Francis has urged the world in his Easter message to use the “weapons of love” to combat the evil of “blind and brutal violence” following the tragic attacks in Brussels.
The Roman Catholic church leader said an Easter Sunday Mass under tight security for tens of thousands of people in St Peter’s Square.
After the service, he gave a traditional speech in which he addressed violence, injustice and threats to peace in many parts of the world.
He said: “May he [the risen Jesus] draw us closer on this Easter feast to the victims of terrorism, that blind and brutal form of violence which continues to shed blood in different parts of the world.”
Meanwhile, the Islamic State’s chief executioner Hicham Chaibhas told Europe that the sickening terrorist attacks seen in Brussels this week were just “a taste” of what is to come.
