NEW YORK (PIX11) -- Pope Francis delivered his Easter message in Vatican City bringing up the Kenyan massacre which killed 148 people on Thursday.
“May constant prayer rise up from all people of goodwill for those who lost their lives – for those killed last Thursday at Garissa University College in Kenya,” said the Pope in Italian.
The pontiff urging people around the world to put aside pride, and embrace forgiveness and peace.
“Peace, peace. There is so much bloodshed in the world,” said one woman.
The Pope plans to visit the United States in the fall. He is expected to be in Philadelphia on September 26th and 27th.
