Reynosa, Tamaulipas.- Pope Francis sent his condolences to the families of the victims and condemned the massacre recorded in Reynosa, Tamaulipas.
It was on June 19, when a commando ended the lives of 15 people, after choosing them at random, while they were moving through various colonies on this border.
Given this, the Pope, through a letter addressed to the Bishop of Matamoros, Eugenio Lira Rugarcía, offered votes in memory of the deceased.
The letter, signed by Cardinal Pietro Parolín, secretary of state, highlights that the Pope condemns the violent acts in which innocent people lost their lives.
“The Holy Father reiterates his firm disapproval for this episode of unjustifiable violence that mourns that Christian community.”
He asked that the condolences be conveyed to the relatives who mourn the loss of their loved ones.
“Ask the Lord Prince of Peace to convert the hearts of the violent and grant the bereaved spiritual consolation and serenity of life.
“Pope Francis points to the letter, as a sign of Christian faith and hope in the Risen Lord, affectionately imparts the comforting Apostolic Blessing that he extends to all who participate in the funeral celebration.
“Uniting myself to the prayers and intentions that the Holy Father expresses to you, I greet you and all those present, expressing my most sincere feelings of closeness and esteem in the Lord”, emphasizes Cardinal Pietro Parolín.
