“On behalf of the University of Notre Dame, I extend my deepest condolences to the families and friends of the victims in the Sri Lanka attacks,” Jenkins said in the statement. “As we, along with Christians around the world, gathered to celebrate the joyful Easter message of victory over sin and death, we were shocked and saddened to hear news of such cruel killings in Sri Lanka, some at Easter Masses.”
Jenkins asked all Christians to join him in praying for the victims of the attacks and called for justice for those responsible.
“We commend to God those killed, pray for those wounded and call for an impartial inquiry that will bring perpetrators to justice,” he said.
