Rome grieves in solidarity with Paris

I'm in the Eternal City (Rome) for ecumenical meetings. It is evident that the hearts of Romans are weeping for the citizens of their great sister city of Paris. At the sung mass in All Saints this morning the parishioners prayed the intercessions in silence while they lit candles for the victims of the terrorist attacks.

I'm staying next door to "St Louis of the French" church which is filled with people coming to say their prayers and also light candles in solidarity.
