CARDINAL DOLAN’S STATEMENT ON EMANUEL AFRICAN METHODIST EPISCOPAL (AME) CHURCH
Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York, released the following statement today:
"I am confident in the assurances I give our suffering brothers and sisters at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church in Charleston that they have the love, prayerful solidarity, and condolences of the people, priests, deacons, and religious of the Archdiocese of New York.
God teaches that every human life is sacred; God’s house should always be a place of safety and peace. I ask that intercession for the wounded Christian community be part of our Sunday Masses this weekend."
