His Majesty FELIPE VI
King of Spain
My heart grieved as I learned about the terror attack in Barcelona, as the result of which many people had died and been injured. Please accept my sincere condolences.
On these days of mourning I am grieving with the people of Spain, with the relatives and friends of those killed and injured.
I am lifting up my prayers to the All-Merciful Lord that He may grant fortitude and consolation to the families of the victims and the soonest recovery to the injured.
With sincere condolences,
PATRIARCH OF MOSCOW AND ALL RUSSIA
