I want to assure you that  the people of Paris and of all France are in our thoughts and prayers here in Glasgow and throughout Scotland.

 

We join with you in prayer, commending to God’s love and mercy all those who were killed, injured, and bereaved, and all whose lives have been affected by these tragic events.

 

Fraternally in Christ,

 

+Philip Tartaglia
