A message from Fr John after Lahore attacks

Dear Friend,

We reached out to Fr John for an update concerning his and our Orthodox brethren’s safety in the wake of recent terror attacks in Lahore. He had this to say:

Thank God, we all are okay, though this incident happened close to our area. Here the situation is very dangerous but thank you so much for your kind concern for us.
God Bless you,
Fr. John

Times like these recall to memory hymns such as this:

“Oh Lord save your people and bless your inheritance! Granting to your people victory over all their enemies, and by the power of your cross, preserve your estate.”
-Troparion of the Holy Cross

Please continue to keep our brethren in your prayers.
