From our community, addressed to the Muslim community and friends in Luxembourg:
We learned with shock and great sadness of the recent attack on mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, in which 50 people were killed and many others were injured. Apparently this outrage was motivated by racial and religious hatred. We wish to profess our profound sympathy for and solidarity with those who are bereaved and those who are suffering — such acts are abhorrent and always to be condemned. We believe all people are created equal, and worthy of the same dignity, justice and respect, regardless of race, religious belief, social status, or any other factor. We hold in prayer all those who are suffering, those who have died, and all those who work for good relations between different faith communities, and who work for peace.
