Pope Francis offered prayers on August 2 for the faithful of Nicaragua following the damaging on July 31, of the crucifix in the Cathedral of Managua.

The Holy Father’s expression of closeness came after praying the noonday Angelus with the “socially distanced” crowd gathered in St. Peter’s Square.

“I am thinking of the people of Nicaragua who are suffering because of the attack in the Cathedral of Managua, where an image of Christ that is highly venerated, that has accompanied and sustained the life of the faithful people for centuries, was greatly damaged – almost destroyed.,” Pope Francis said. “Dear brothers and sisters in Nicaragua, I am near you and am praying for you.”
