MIA Prayer Intention for the Coming Week: Victims of the Easter Sunday Pakistan Bomb Blast
74 people - at least 24 of them children - were killed and 362 were injured when an Islamist suicide bomber struck at Gulshan-i-Iqbal Park with the apparent aim of targeting Christians enjoying Easter celebrations in a public park. Most of those killed in Lahore were Muslims.
We pray for all the victims of this terrorist attack, for their families, friends, colleagues and communities. We join with Pope Francis in condemning this violent outburst and echo his words that 'violence and murderous hatred lead only to pain and destruction; respect and fraternity are the only way to achieve peace'.
