    Pretoria, 11 May: “We heard with great shock and sadness of the attack on the Imam Hussein Mosque in Verulam, Durban and the tragic killing of an imam and the injury of two other people. On behalf of the Catholic Church in Southern Africa, we offer our deepest condolences and sympathy to the family and friends of the murdered imam, and wish the injured a speedy and full recovery. Our hearts go out to the community of the Imam Hussein Mosque who have been so brutally violated. You are in our thoughts and prayers. We strongly condemn this bloody and futile attack and call upon law enforcement agencies to work diligently to bring the perpetrators to justice. Religious tolerance has long been a characteristic of South African society and those who wish to wreak havoc, and set one faith community against another, must never be allowed to succeed. We will continue to pray for peace in our country and throughout the world, a peace that is based on respect for the dignity and rights of each human being".

    These days leading up to Pentecost call us to pray expectantly for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit on all our communities. It is also a time when many Christians gather to pray for Church Unity. Material for use for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity can be emailed from the Chancery on request for those who did not receive it. The theme this year is:-

    "Your right hand, 0 Lord, glorious in power" (Exodus15:6)
