The head of the Roman Catholic Church is denouncing the recent horrific murders in Kenya on this Good Friday leading to Easter for Christians and the beginning of Passover for those of the Jewish faith. The Vatican released a statement from Pope Francis where the Pontiff didn’t hold back, “His Holiness condemns this act of senseless brutality and prays for a change of heart among its perpetrators.”  The Pope also called upon “all those in authority to redouble their efforts” in Kenya “to bring an end to such violence.” Pope Francis’ strong words are a reaction to militants who attacked a Kenyan university Thursday, killing at least 147 people.
