Message from Fr. Laurence to the Community in France

I was giving a talk in Paraguay on meditation and violence when the tragic attacks took place in Paris that have so shocked the world.

‎Our community across the globe hold the victims and the traumatised survivors _ and all of France - in our hearts at this time when silence is the deepest and best healing response to the grief and the shame that all human beings must feel as they see the rejection of the human and the divine.
‎May this silence that heals also empower us to seek and make a peace that reflects the true meaning of human existence and turn despair once again into hope.
I feel very close to you and all our community in South America join me in sending you
Much love
