Archbishop Charles J. Chaput issued the following statement March 22 regarding the terrorist attacks in Belgium. Read about the deadly attacks and Pope Francis’ response, here.
Americans woke up this morning to the tragic news of yet another terror attack — this time in Belgium. Each life lost was a precious gift from God that has been torn from all those whom it touched.
We join with the Church in Belgium and the entire nation in this moment of intense pain. I ask the clergy and people of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia to pray in a special way for all those killed, injured, suffering and mourning as a result of this act of evil.
As we commemorate the passion, death, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ this Holy Week, let us remember that God is the source of love and life and ask Him to bring peace to our troubled world.
