Archbishop Eamon Martin has called for prayers for those killed and injured in last night’s terrorist attack in Nice, France. He said:
The horrific scenes on the streets of Nice once more send shock waves into our homes and hearts. How helpless we all are when someone decides to deliberately and indiscriminately target human life.
Please keep the people of France in your prayers and especially the dead and injured, the families and loved ones of all those caught up in this senseless and brutal act.
Our thoughts and prayers are with also with the first responders and with members of the French community living here in Ireland.
I invite everyone to undertake an act of kindness or compassion this weekend, perhaps in some small way to counterbalance with love this awful crime.
Lord, make us all channels of your peace; Where there is hatred, may we bring your love. Amen
- Archbishop Eamon Martin is Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland.
