Pope prays for 9/11 victims and loved ones

Pope Benedict XVI appealed to the world to resist what he called the temptation toward hatred.



Ancona: Pope Benedict XVI prayed on Sunday for the victims of the September 11 terror attacks and their loved ones and appealed to the world to resist what he called the "temptation toward hatred”.

The pontiff reflected on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks during remarks to the faithful at the end of an outdoor Mass he was celebrating in Ancona, an Adriatic port city.

The pope said, "I invite the leaders of nations and men of good will to always refuse violence as the solution to problems, to resist the temptation toward hatred and to work in society, inspired by the principles of solidarity, justice and peace."
On Saturday, Benedict sent a message Saturday to the United States, through a letter to New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan, the head of the US Catholic bishops conference, in which he insisted that violence never be carried out in God`s name.
