VATICAN The lives of 19 religious men and women martyred during the Algerian civil war are a testament to Gods plan of love and peaceful coexistence between Christians and Muslims, Pope Francis said .
Both Christians and Muslims in Algeria have been victims of the same violence for having lived, with faithfulness and respect for each other, their duties as believers and citizens in this blessed land. It is for them, too, that we pray and express our grateful tribute, the Pope said.
Among those who were beatified were Blessed Christian de Cherge and six of his fellow Trappists Fathers Christophe Lebreton, Bruno Lemarchand and Celestin Ringeard as well as Brothers Luc Dochier, Michel Fleury and Paul Favre-Miville who were murdered in 1996 by members of the Armed Islamic Group in Tibhirine, Algeria .
Several months after their deaths, Blessed Pierre Claverie, bishop of Oran, was assassinated along with his driver by an explosive device. According to the website of the Dominican Order of Preachers, his death was mourned also by Muslims who considered him their bishop.

In case anyone wasn’t sure that the pope is totally insane, he is proving it again.
What an ignorant, non-Christian statement.
Catholic Church hired a comedian with a morbid sense of gallows humor,.
He is a twisted guy. Too bad he just stacked the cardinal deck to remain in power until he dies or someone even worse comes along.
So Muslims can continue to murder Christians, and, that is OK by the Pope.
So - if I’m murdered by a muzzie that shows him, the pope, that muzzies are co-existing in friendship. “?”
Its all part of the grand plan.
You cant do anything about it anyway.
Sucks to be an infidel.
Very sad. I am reminded of the vile Gen. Casey who as Army Chief of Staff during the Ft. Hood shooting said it would be a greater tragedy if it hurt our diversity. I wanted to strangle the bastard who would surrender force protection to leftism.
Can anyone on this forum tell me why I should be a catholic?
So now I have to add the Pope...yes, the Pope...to my list of enemies who want me dead.
Pope Frank is one messed up dude, isnt he?
Huh? That makes no sense.
Because this asshat of a Pope will die, and hopefully a much better man will take his place?
Obama was POTUS, and you are/were still an American, yes?
The sooner Frances achieves first-hand “peaceful coexistence” with his own personal Mooslim jihadi the better.
It’s a testament to a lot of things. But that ain’t in it. The dumbass
Has anyone seen the Pope and Joe Biden in the same room together?
