The Archbishop in his letter further states:
“We strongly believe that even in the dire circumstances of this tragedy, the love of God will prevail over the forces of darkness and hatred. We believe based on the experience of the Holy Week of Passion, that even after the Crucifixion, God defeated death and evil and triumphed through the Resurrection.
We stand firm and in solidarity with the victims and the families of this horrendous terrorist attack. We fervently pray for the repose of the souls of those who perished, for the consolation of their families and for the protection of all the members of the Coptic Christian Church in Egypt.”
