On behalf of the Viatorian Community in the United States and Colombia, we share theParis poster horror, shock and pain that our French Viatorian Community — where the Clerics of St. Viator was founded more than 175 years ago — is experiencing at this time.

We condemn the violence that Parisians, the people of France and indeed all peoples of the world experienced this past Friday evening in Paris.

We pray for peace and for justice at this time of sadness. Our prayers are for those who were killed and injured. We also embrace the families and friends of those who died and those critically wounded.

May God bless the people of France and our brothers and sisters of the Viatorian Delegation of France.

Adored and loved be Jesus,

Rev. Thomas R. von Behren, CSV, provincial
