Our response

“So God created humankind in his image” (Gen 1:27)

“However kills an innocent person it is as if they have killed all of humanity” (Qu’ran 5:32)

Thus, if you live in Paris

Or Beirut

Or Damascus

Or Baghdad

Each person has dignity

No hierarchy

A death in Paris

Or Beirut

Or Damascus

Or Baghdad

Is to be grieved

Part of God’s image

Is lost

And we are all

Diminished

There is so much anger

So much hatred

What should our response be?

To follow Jesus, Francis of Assisi

And many others:

Peace

Love

Pardon

Faith

Hope

Light

Joy
