Metropolitan Issues Statement on Cairo Massacre

It is with great sorrow that we were greeted on Sunday morning with the news of a terrorist attack which killed 25 innocent Coptic Orthodox Christians. Although these innocent souls have gained the glorious rank of martyrdom, we also grieve and condemn such attacks on people who seek to practice their faith.

The clergy and faithful of the Northeast American Diocese of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church, offer our sincere prayers to those who have been affected, and express our solidarity with our Coptic Orthodox brothers and sisters. May these holy martyrs of Egypt intercede for us. May their souls find good rest in the bosom of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

Let us pray and implore the Lord, that He may continue to protect Christians all over the world, especially in Egypt and the Middle East. May Christ our God provide guidance to all spiritual and civil leaders who offer leadership during these difficult times.
