May God have mercy . . .

The Benedictine Sisters of Erie are appalled at the latest act of violence hurled against innocent people who were defenseless as they prayed to their God.

“We offer support and compassion to our Muslim sisters and brothers, especially to the victims and their families in Christchurch” said Sister Anne Wambach, prioress. “We pray for God’s mercy and we hope that we will never lose sight of the human vulnerability that unites us as one family in this world that we share.”

As Benedictine Sisters of Erie we commit ourselves to be a healing presence and prophetic witness for peace by working for sustainability and justice, especially for women and children. (Corporate Commitment of the Benedictine Sisters of Erie)
