Pope Benedict Condemns Bombing in Cotabato City

This past Sunday, terrorists detonated a bomb during mass near the Cathedral of Cotabato City in the Mindanao region of the Philippines. My charity, the Philippine Aid Society, has established a relief fund and we will raise funds throughout the month of July to support the victims and their families. Please consider a donation of any amount to the Cotabato Relief Fund.

Hundreds of churchgoers remained inside the cathedral after the powerful explosion, praying even more fervently for “peace.” The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) said that Cotabato Archbishop Orlando Quevedo was delivering his homily when the incident occurred, causing panic among churchgoers.
