Pope Francis: "We are united in grief over a Genocide that the powerful empires seek to silence and cover"

Buenos Aires (Diario ARMENIA).- The election of Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio as Pope Francisco, has provided a glimmer of hope for the claims of the Armenian people. His sympathy with the Armenian Cause has led him to show his constant support in events and ceremonies organized by the Armenian Community in Argentina. He referred to the Armenian Genocide en several sermons delivered in the Metropolitan Cathedral of Buenos Aires.

In 2004, during a Mass in memory of the victims of the Armenian Genocide, the Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio said: “We are united in grief over a Genocide, the first of the twentieth century, a Genocide that powerful empires seek to silence and cover by all means”. Two years later, on the commemoration of the 91st Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, in an ecumenical meeting chaired by Archbishop Kissag Mouradian, Primate of the Armenian Apostolic Church in Argentina and Chile, Bergoglio said: “Today we come to pray for the people who are denied human rights”.
