Pope Francis offered prayers for the victims of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting in his Angelus address Sunday.
“May the The Most High welcome the dead in his peace, comfort their families and support the wounded,” Pope Francis said Oct. 28.
Eleven people were killed when a gunman opened fire at the Tree of Life synagogue Saturday morning during its Sabbath service.
The pope expressed his closeness to the city of Pittsburgh and “in particular to the Jewish community.”
