Archbishop Justin and the other five Presidents of Churches Together in England released a statement today following the killing yesterday of Father Jacques Hamel in Rouen, France.

After news of the attack broke yesterday, Archbishop Justin tweeted: “Evil attacks the weakest, denies truth and love, is defeated through Jesus Christ. We pray for France, for the victims and for their communities.”

“Le mal attaque les plus faibles, nie toute vérité et amour, est vaincu par Jésus. Prions pour la France, ses victimes et ses communautés.”
