Massacre In Nice | Announcement of the Episcopal Assembly of the Orthodox Bishops of France on the massacre in Nice
“Nothing can justify such violence.”
Terror struck again in the heart of our Nation and offended our Democracy.
Nothing can justify the violence that costs human lives and even in a church, in a place of prayer, the praise of God, and peace.
We, the Orthodox Bishops of France, strongly condemn this heinous act and any religious exploitation for political reasons. Religion can only be a factor of peace and brotherhood between peoples and a means of integration into the Republic and our country’s traditions.
We express our solidarity and our sincere and friendly condolences to our Roman Catholic brothers in France. The orthodox of France participate in their mourning and pray for the victims and the wounded.
We also welcome the action of the security forces on the front lines to ensure order.

The vile attack on the Nice cathedral will not weaken our common front in defense of peace and freedom values. Our convictions are more potent than fanaticism, hatred, and cowardly terror. We are close to the families of the victims and our French brothers. We are united!
