Patriarchal Comments on Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting

PATRIARCHAL SEE 28 October 2018 (ORCNS) - The Imperial Patriarch of St. Stephen spoke today regarding the shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA on Saturday. The Cardinal Father joined other religious and civic leaders in condemning the violent and brutal attack. He stated, "History has shown that there are those who are filled with hatred towards others and are willing to do violence to others because of that hate. The synagogue shooting appears to be yet another sad manifestation of that."

The Cardinal Father also said, "Even in the worst of tragedies, we should always hope for and work for something positive to come out of it. Let us hope that this tragic, senseless, and needless event may bring diverse peoples together in a lasting peace."
