Sir David Amess (+)

At the end of this week, we learned to our distress that one of the Church’s most well-known sons in this country suffered a violent physical attack and was killed, and in a church as well. His Eminence the Cardinal has made a programmed video statement about this tragedy, the text of which you should find at this Bishops’ Conference page. The video is below. This is the post made on Sir David’s twitter account for the event yesterday, at the which the attack took place:

Please pray for the repose of Sir David’s soul, and for the large family he leaves behind. He will be remembered at all our Masses for the next few days.
