A car crash in Argentina killed 8-month-old  and 2-year-old grand nephews of Pope Francis, and the boys’ mother.


A truck struck a car driven by the pope’s nephew Emanuel Horacio Bergoglio on a highway in Cordoba at about 12:30 a.m., Cordoba police spokeswoman Carina Ferreyra said.

Emanuel Bergoglio’s sons — Jose Bergoglio, 8 months, and Antonio Bergoglio, 2 — and his wife and the boys’ mother, Valeria Carmona, 36, died, police said.

Emanuel Bergoglio was taken to a hospital in Cordoba, where he was in critical condition Tuesday morning, Ferreyra said.[su_sky_ad]

    I can only say they must be in a better place than this hate filled world man made. God bless their souls.

    Very sad. I hope they investigate the accident. May these souls now reside in paradise.
