Catholic Cardinals and bishops throughout the world are offering their prayers after the terrorist attack in London last night that left seven dead and dozens more injured.
Cardinal Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster and President of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales, said on Twitter last night that the victims of the attack were in his prayers.
Cardinal Wilfrid Fox Napier, OFM, Archbishop of Durban, South Africa, responded to Cardinal Nichols' tweet with his prayers and condolences.
Cardinal Vincent, please accept my sincere sympathies for all affected by recent acts of terror in London & Manchester!— Cardinal Napier (@CardinalNapier) June 4, 2017
Seven people were killed and 48 others injured last night when three men drove a van into a crowd of people on London Bridge around 10 p.m. local time last night. The men then went on a stabbing spree in nearby Borough Market where people were enjoying a Saturday night out at restaurants and pubs.
