We have learned with sorrow and worry about the terrorist attack that took place in Brussels Tuesday morning, 22 March 2016, after which at least 34 persons have been killed and 136 injured.
In these difficult moments for the Belgian people, we pray for the rest of the souls of the deceased, for the consolation of the bereaved families, and for the recovery of the injured.
We express our solidarity with the Belgian people passing through distress, as well as our concern for the escalation of terrorist attacks in Europe.
We pray God for the peace, the understanding and the good coexistence between people of different nationalities, cultures and religious beliefs.
Patriarch of Romania
