Bishop Noel Treanor addresses autumn plenary assembly of the 27 bishops’ conferences of COMECE in Brussels on the possible impact of the UK’s decision to leave the EU.
“At this time, our spirit is once more shaken by the sad news relating to the deplorable acts of terrorism and violence which have caused suffering and death.”
COMECE president says the decision of the British electorate confronts the European Union and its Member States with questions about their goals and their tasks.
"Let us pray that there can be an end to such terror attacks and hope for a future in which peace and security will prevail over violence & loss of human life."
“The fact that we owe our freedom to others means that this commemoration brings us face to face with our own responsibilities. Freedom and responsibility are inseparable.”
