Bishop Curry Responds to Sri Lankan Attacks

Presiding Bishop Michael Curry issued this statement on April 22 about multiple bombings in Sri Lanka:

The joy of Easter was mixed with grief following the dreadful attacks that morning on churches and hotels in Sri Lanka, bombings that left hundreds dead and wounded. Our hearts ache for the all those who mourn this week, and as Episcopalians join with countless persons of good will I’m praying for the power of love to overcome the forces of hatred and violence. May the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercies of God, rest in peace.
