Statement Concerning the Sri Lanka Bombings

The Coptic Media Center issued the following statement regarding the events in Sri Lanka:

The Coptic Orthodox Church, led by His Holiness Pope Tawadros II, condemns the series of bombings that took place on the island of Sri Lanka on April 21st, 2019, which resulted in the death of tens and hundreds of woundedd worshipers and believers. 

The Church strongly rejects all types of violence against any human regardless of their belief, race or nationality, and prays that the Lord may grant the families of the martyrs who shed their blood comfort and peace, and grant speedy recovery to the injured. The Church also prays for a world free of hatred and violence, and that love and peace may prevail in every corner of the earth.
