Cardinal Vincent Prays for Victims of Lahore Attack

Following the suicide bomb attack on Christians celebrating Easter in Lahore, in which both Christians and Muslims were killed, Cardinal Vincent issued the following statement:

'The perversity of evil knows no bounds. It sinks to a new low of hatred in deliberately targeting women and children celebrating their Easter Day in peace. This despicable act, aimed at Christians, is utterly contemptible and condemned just as we fervently pray for those who have died and been wounded. Evil will never defeat goodness, as has been demonstrated, once and for all, in the resurrection from the dead of Jesus Christ, our Lord.'
