The Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge, Bishop of Arlington released the following statement:
The horrific attacks in London and the ongoing violence throughout our world sadly remind us of the urgent need to pray daily and fervently for God’s peace in every land and nation. May the Lord grant eternal life to those killed, heal those who were injured and, in his divine mercy, transform the hearts of those who seek to do harm to others. On this Pentecost Sunday and always, we ask the Holy Spirit to guide our leaders so they may work together in securing our protection, freedom and unity. Mary, Queen of Peace, pray for us.
