Lraper: Patriarch’s Sympathy with the American people

His Beatitude Mesrob II, Armenian Patriarch of Istanbul and All Turkey, offered special prayers for the victims of the terrorist attacks in the United States.

In his letters to US President George Bush, US Ambassador in Ankara Mr Robert Pearson and US Consul General in Istanbul Mr Frank Urbancic, the Patriarch expressed his solidarity with the people of the United States and offered prayers of comfort as the American people attempt to deal with this horrific national disaster.

Upon hearing the news, the Patriarch immediately called His Eminence Archbishop Khajag, Primate of the Eastern Diocese of the Armenian Church of America in New York, and expressed his solidarity with the Armenian Church and community in America at this difficult time.

His Beatitude learnt about the dreadful events in New York and Washington while on the Island of Leandros in the Sea of Marmara, where he was leading a one-day spiritual retreat with members of the Brotherhood of the Istanbul Patriarchate.

The Patriarch said there will be special prayers offered this Sunday for the victims of this tragedy, their families and friends, and for the leaders and authorities in the United States, so that they may be guided with wisdom at this time of intense shock, grief and trial.
