Please continue to remember the people of Manchester and especially those who have lost loved ones in the recent tragedy. We also keep in our prayers those who were injured and who may have to face many months of treatment and care. The psychological trauma will leave deep scars. We pray too for those responsible for such carnage, that they will come to understand the sacredness and inviolability of human life.
