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.
