Francis said "painful news is coming from Egypt." He said at the end of a Mass he celebrated Thursday in the main square in Castel Gandolfo, where the Vatican has a summer retreat villa, that he wanted to assure his prayers to the victims, their families, the wounded and all those suffering in Egypt.
