39 Killed in Panama’s Migration Accident, Pope Griefs and Prays for Victims

In the wake of Panama’s worst-ever migration accident, Pope Francis has expressed his deep sorrow over the tragic loss of life. 

The accident occurred last week when a group of migrants was traveling in a truck that crashed and caught fire, killing at least 39 people, while they were trying to cross from Columbia through Panama to the US. According to a report by Premier, the bus, carrying more than 60 passengers had somersaulted and tumbled off a cliff in Panama after crossing the Darien Gap. 

In a statement released by the Vatican on Monday, the Pope said that he was “profoundly saddened” by the news of the accident and offered his condolences to the families of the victims. He prayed for the injured and called for greater efforts to protect migrants and refugees who are often forced to travel under dangerous and precarious conditions.

“The Holy Father entrusts to the mercy of God the souls of those who lost their lives in this tragic event, and he expresses his closeness to their families and to all those who are suffering from this great tragedy,” the statement read.

The Pope’s remarks come as the world continues to grapple with the ongoing migrant and refugee crisis, which has forced millions of people to flee their homes and seek refuge in other countries. While many countries have stepped up to provide aid and support to these individuals, others have taken a more hostile stance, closing their borders and turning away those in need.

As the leader of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis has been a vocal advocate for the rights of migrants and refugees. He has called on governments to do more to protect these individuals, and has spoken out against the discrimination and mistreatment that many face on their journeys.

The Pope’s words serve as a reminder of the urgent need for greater action and support for those who are forced to flee their homes in search of safety and security.

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
