During the “Holy Mass for the Faithful of the Armenian Rite” held in Rome on April 12 Pope Francis used the word “genocide” to refer to the massacres of Armenians that occurred in the Ottoman Empire in the early 20th century. Many people from around the world traveled to Rome to take part in the ceremony. Among those present was Archbishop Kissag Mouradian, the Primate of the Apostolic Armenian Church of the Republic of Argentina and Chile.

In his Sunday “Mass for the faithful of the Armenian rite” the head of the Catholic Church called the massacres of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire at the beginning of the 20th century a “genocide.” Speaking at St. Peter’s Basilica on April 12, Pope Francis addressed a numerous audience that included Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan and the leadership of the Armenian Church. The Pope spoke of the dangers posed by indifference and failing to acknowledge the past.
