Statement of Bishop Burbidge in Response to Shooting in Alexandria
I am profoundly saddened by the tragic shooting at Eugene Simpson Stadium Park in Alexandria earlier this morning. Today I call on the faithful in the Diocese of Arlington and all people of good will to join me in prayer for Rep. Steve Scalise and the others who were wounded in this senseless attack. May the Lord grant them swift healing and consolation. As we pray for God’s mercy, we also ask Mary, our Mother, to intercede for us, so that our world will know the peace of her Son.
Today as the Church invites us to begin a novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, I ask Catholics of our diocese to pray the novena with a specific intention for peace.

Statement from the Most Rev. Michael F. Burbidge, Bishop of Arlington, on the Church Bombing in Tanta, Egypt
On Palm Sunday, we enter into the holiest of weeks, yet today our hearts are filled with grief upon hearing the news of the Mar Girgis church bombing in Tanta, Egypt. Please join me in praying for those who have died and their families. This heinous act of violence within the very sanctuary of Christian worship should call all of us to deeper prayer for our brothers and sisters in Egypt and persecuted Christians throughout the world. May Our Lady, Queen of Peace, intercede for us as we pray for an end to all violence.
