The following is Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s statement on the violence in Sri Lanka:

The joy of Easter was mixed with grief following the dreadful attacks that morning on churches and hotels in Sri Lanka, bombings that left hundreds dead and wounded. Our hearts ache for the all those who mourn this week, and Episcopalians join with countless persons of good will in praying for the power of love to overcome the forces of hatred and violence. May the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercies of God, Rest In Peace.

Lo que sigue es la declaración del Obispo Presidente Michael Curry de La Iglesia Episcopal, sobre la violencia en Sri Lanka:

La alegría de la Pascua se mezcló con el dolor después de los terribles ataques acaecidos esa mañana en iglesias y hoteles en Sri Lanka; bombardeos que dejaron cientos de muertos y heridos. Nuestros corazones sufren por todos los que lloran esta semana, y los episcopales se unen en oración a innumerables personas de buena voluntad para que el poder del amor venza las fuerzas del odio y la violencia. Que las almas de todos los fieles difuntos, por la misericordia de Dios descansen en paz.
