Pope Francis praying for Maguire family and for all affected by the stabbing of teacher

The Pope has sent his sincere condolences to the family of murdered schoolteacher Ann Maguire. Pope Francis asked The Papal Nuncio to convey his sympathy to all those affected by the tragedy and also let them know he was praying for them. In a letter to the acting Bishop of Leeds, Archbishop Antonio Mennini said: “Having learnt that sad news of the tragic murder of Mrs Ann Maguire last Monday at Corpus Christi Catholic College in Leeds, I should like to convey to you as well as to Mrs Maguire’s family, friends colleagues and the whole community of Corpus Christi College, the spiritual closeness of the Holy Father, Pope Francis as well as my sincere sympathy in these difficult moments.” The letter went on: “I assure you of my prayers for the repose of the soul of Mrs Maguire and for the consolation and strengthening of all those persons close to her and all those who mourn her sudden death. “May the Lord grant her eternal rest and reward of her life of dedication and of service to young people and to education.”
