Monsignor’s Message – Papal Visit

Posted on Apr 27, 2017 in Monsignor's Message

This is a message from Msgr. Kieran Harrington, Vicar for Communications for the Diocese of Brooklyn that appears in The Tablet:

In the aftermath of the recent attack in France and the continuous violent persecution of Coptic Christians, the Pope is traveling to Egypt.  Pope Francis and Patriarch Bartholomew will join Pope Tawadros II – Bishop of Alexandria, Patriarch of Egypt and All Africa – at a special peace conference in order to demonstrate a united Christian front against violence and fanaticism. Pontifex, an ancient title for the popes, means bridge-builder. The Holy Father is offering us a courageous lesson about the importance of building bridges within the Christian community and the broader religious world. Let’s all pray that the world may reap the fruits of peace that Pope Francis is sowing. May God bless you.

May God bless you,
Monsignor Kieran Harrington, V.E.
