Cardinal Marx on the Brussels Attacks
The President of the Commission of the Bishops’ Conferences of the European Community (COMECE), Cardinal Reinhard Marx, issued the following statement following the attacks in Brussels:
‘The attacks at Brussels Airport and on the Metro in the city have upset me deeply and filled me with sadness. My thoughts and prayers go out at this moment to the dead, the injured and their dear ones. This is Holy Week and it is a time we pray with particularly intensity for victims of violence and for those close to them.
Today’s events have touched me profoundly. My European commitments bring me frequently to Brussels and I feel particularly close to the staff of the COMECE Secretariat, based in Brussels, in this current situation.’
