Cardinal Brady calls for prayers of support for the Polish community
On reports that at least 13 people from Poland were killed in a road traffic accident today, Cardinal Seán Brady, Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland, said “I express my deepest sympathies to Polish people who have suffered the loss of 13 compatriots and a further 19 who were severely injured in a road traffic accident near Berlin. The loss of life is profoundly upsetting. I ask the faithful to unite in prayer for those who have died and for their loved ones.
At this time I encourage everyone, through prayer and friendship, to express solidarity with our Polish community here in Ireland.”
