SRI LANKARIA: OUR DARKEST HOURS: What should have been a joyous celebration of resurrection and new life, Easter Sunday in Sri Lanka this year brought terror to the hearts of the faithful and destroyed innocent lives. These cold-blooded terrorist attacks have devastated the Sri Lankan people and shocked the world.

Cardinal Ranjith’s sorrow

"Immediately after the attacks were carried out, His Eminence Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith, the Archbishop of the diocese of Colombo visited the explosion sites and spoke with people. He expressed his deep sorrow to the victims and their families and urged them not to hurt or attack anybody by taking the law into their own hands.

Being with the people. "With much sorrow, I visited the places of the attacks and went to hospitals where the injured are being treated. Speaking to them and hearing of their trauma was heart- breaking.

"Many who miraculously escaped death do not know and have not been told that some of their family members have lost their lives.

Please read the full report in the bulletin and how you can help the people affected by this tragedy.

  “HEART TALK” WITH BISHOP DECLAN ON

SHALOM WORLD TV: Bishops face the nearly impossible task of governing their dioceses while remaining a pastoral presence to their people. That’s why SHALOM WORLD is compiling exclusive ‘heart-to-heart’ interviews through which you’ll learn about the childhood, vocational discernment, spirituality, and challenges faced by our Shepherds.

Bishop Declan Lang is the champion of evangelisation and human rights over the world. Be confident and be in Christian faith, is his message. He had a personal relationship with God in the childhood itself. This has helped him to follow the urge to become a priest. For him Christian identity relays on the prayers and sacrifice.
