Murdered nuns 'gave blood for the Church', declares Pope

The pontiff told the faithful on Sunday that the nuns "gave their blood for the church" and that they were not only victims of the attackers but also of "this indifference of globalisation".

The nuns were among 16 people killed on Friday by gunmen who stormed a retirement home run by a charity established by Mother Teresa.

Meanwhile the Indian Foreign Minister announced on her twitter account that an Indian priest was abducted during the attack.

Sushma Swaraj said officials were trying to establish the location of Fr Tom Uzhunnalil. She said he had been "abducted by terrorists".

No one claimed responsibility for the attack.

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
