MONTREAL, Jan. 30, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ -
Message from Archbishop Christian Lépine to the Archbishop of Quebec:
Gérald Cyprien Cardinal Lacroix
Archbishop of Quebec
Dear Cardinal Lacroix,
In the face of the attack perpetrated in Quebec City, I wish to express to you, on behalf of the faithful of the Archdiocese of Montreal and of myself, my most heartfelt solidarity with you, with the diocesan community, with the victims' families, and with the Muslim community.
Nothing can justify acts of murder against innocent people. We are called to reaffirm continuously, whatever our beliefs, that as human beings we are all brothers and sisters, and we are all equal in dignity.
Taking a moment of silence, we ask God to keep us ever respectful with hearts set firmly on peace.
Archbishop of Montreal
Special Mass today at 5 p.m.
Furthermore, Most Reverend Christian Lépine will celebrate a special Mass for the victims and their families today at 5 p.m., at Mary Queen of the World Cathedral.
