He added that Blessed Mother Theresa will intercede for them and will bring peace.

“I express my closeness to the Missionaries of Charity for the great loss that affected them two days ago with the killing of four religious in Aden, Yemen, where they assisted the elderly. The sisters who were killed “are the martyrs of today. They gave their blood for the Church, (yet) they are not in the papers, they are not news,” he said.

Pope Francis prayed for the victims and their families telling that Mother Theresa would accompany them.
