//Pope Francis prays for victims of Barcelona terrorist attack

Pope Francis “has learned with great concern what is happening in Barcelona,” according to a statement this afternoon from the Director of the Holy See Press Office, Greg Burke.

“The Pope prays for victims of this attack and wishes to express his closeness to all the Spanish people, in particularly the injured and families of the victims.”

A van sped into a crowd of people in the Las Ramblas tourist area of Barcelona, Spain on Thursday, killing at least 13 people and injuring dozens more.

Please pray along with the Holy Father for the victims and their families.
