After a terrorist attack on a commuter train left more than 20 people injured in London on Friday, Cardinal Vincent Nichols of Westminster decried the act as cowardly and offered his prayers for peace.
"I am dismayed at yet another cowardly attack on innocent people, including young children, as they were commuting to work and school this morning," he said in a Sept. 15 statement.
"I pray for all who were injured in the blast and in the ensuing stampede, and for all who were affected by the incident. May God grant them and all Londoners peace and strengthen our resolve to stand against such evil acts."
I pray for all the injured and those affected by the #ParsonsGreenExplosion. May God grant them and all Londoners peace.- Cardinal Nichols (@CardinalNichols) September 15, 2017
