Archbishop William Goh’s message for Sri Lanka victims

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

With the words of the Risen Lord to His fearful apostles hiding behind closed doors in fear, I greet you all, “Peace be with you!”  

It is with deep sadness that you gather today to mourn the loss of the lives of so many of our brothers and sisters in Sri Lanka, and those who were injured in the terrorist attack on the most holy day of our Christian celebrations. As Christians we believe that because the Lord is risen, death is not the end of everything but a passage to new life. So, in faith and love, we pray for those whose lives had perished, and for their loved ones who are left behind to pick up the pieces and to carry on with their lives, as well as for the speedy recovery of those who have been injured.
