I am horrified at the news of this terrible attack on innocent people. I am returning from Rome tonight with a message from Pope Benedict in which he speaks of his deep sadness and his fervent prayers for the victims.

I too pray for all those who have suffered in this terrible atrocity and will offer Mass tomorrow evening at 5.30 in Westminster Cathedral for the victims and their families.

Churches are open from dawn to dusk and the Paschal Candle will be lit during this time.
