CHURCH LEADERS DEEPLY SADDENED
We are deeply saddened to learn of the brutal murder of our brother, 84 year old priest Fr Jacques Hamel, in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray, Rouen, France. That a man of peace, who had dedicated his life to serving people could be killed during Mass is testimony to the evil that drives the actions of those who commit suh a crime. We offer our deepest sympathy to his family, friends and parishioners. We pray for the wellbeing of those who were taken hostage, their families and the entire community served by Fr Jacques; indeed we pray for the peace of France, Europe, the Middle East and the world for which Jesus, the Prince of Peace, gave his own life.
We call upon all people of goodwill to pray and work for justice and peace. In particular, we implore everyone to help people everywhere to pursue the path of peace and human flourishing - which is the will of Creator God.
