Vatican City, Apr 12, 2022 / 07:07 am
Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle lamented on Tuesday the killing of seven people at a Caritas center in the besieged Ukrainian city of Mariupol.
The president of Caritas Internationalis, a Vatican-based umbrella body for Catholic relief groups around the world, said on April 12 that he felt “deep sadness and shock.”
“Caritas Internationalis expresses its profound sympathies and closeness to the families of those who lost their lives and were wounded,” the Filipino cardinal told Vatican News, the online news portal of the Holy See.
“Our sadness turns into an appeal to the international community to exert every effort to bring this violence to an end, to return to dialogue, and to see a brother and sister in every person.”
