The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese condemns the terrorist attack in Orlando

We express our unequivocal condemnation for this terrorist attack, the worst mass shooting in American history.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims. May God give rest to the souls of those who were brutally killed and may He provide comfort and courage to their families, as well as to those injured and are now facing the difficult road to recovery.

We also fervently pray to the Lord and God of mercy and peace, to strengthen and guide all efforts to eliminate from the face of the earth the plague of terrorism and the poison of hatred and violence, and to advance reconciliation and peaceful coexistence among all people.
