Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori has released a statement from Dublin on the death of human rights activist David Kato saying “His murder deprives his people of a significant and effective voice.”
Presiding Bishop Jefferts Schori’s statement:
At this morning’s Eucharist at the Primates Meeting, I offered prayers for the repose of the soul of David Kato. His murder deprives his people of a significant and effective voice, and we pray that the world may learn from his gentle and quiet witness, and begin to receive a heart of flesh in place of a heart of stone. May he rest in peace, and may his work continue to bring justice and dignity for all God’s children.
The Presiding Bishop presently is in Dublin, Ireland, attending the meeting of the Primates of the Anglican Communion.
