On May 2, the Holy See released this statement regarding the death of Bin Laden:
“This morning, following the killing of Osama Bin Laden, the Director of the Holy See Press Office, P. Federico Lombardi, issued the following statement to reporters:
Osama Bin Laden, as everyone knows, has had the gravest responsibility for spreading hatred and division among people, causing the deaths of countless people, and exploiting religion for this purpose.
Faced with the death of a man, a Christian never rejoices, but reflects on the serious responsibility of everyone before God and man, and hopes and pledges that every event is not an opportunity for a further growth of hatred, but of peace.”

Osama Bin Laden died on the day of the Beatification for Pope John Paul II and it was also Divine Mercy Sunday. A historical day indeed.
