The Interfaith Council of Peel expresses our deepest condolences to the Christian community in Sri Lanka and worldwide, following the horrific attacks on Easter Sunday. On a day of rejoicing for the Christian community, a day that heralds the promise of peace and redemption, innocent lives were cut off by cruelty and hate.
We extend sympathy to the mourners and pray for the healing of the survivors and all who were injured in the attacks at Anthony’s, St. Sebastian’s and Zion churches, the Shangri-La, Kingsbury, and Cinnamon Grand hotels, and in the streets.
Sunday’s atrocity follows upon the mass murder of Jews at prayer in Pittsburgh in October and the massacre of Muslims at prayer in Christchurch, New Zealand last month. Each of these attacks are horrifying in their own right. The terrorism perpetrated against those innocent lives, as they gathered in prayer, is a threat to free religious observance worldwide. As people of faith, we stand together against violence targeting religious groups and violence perpetrated in the name of religion.
We stand with our Sri Lankan and Christian friends and neighbours at this painful time.
