First Presidency Expresses Love, Support for French People

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

Originally posted on Mormon Newsroom. 

Saturday, November 14, the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints issued the following statement regarding the attacks in Paris:

“With people around the world, we mourn today as we consider the horrific tragedies that have occurred in Paris. We pray for those affected, for their families and loved ones, for the leaders of nations and most especially for the people of France as they struggle to recover from the violence and loss they are feeling so deeply. We have directed that flags on Temple Square be flown at half staff, and that the French Flag be flown here as an expression of our love and support for them. In these hours of uncertainty and despair, we ask members of the Church everywhere to join with us in our prayer that the peace of the Savior Jesus Christ will provide comfort, healing, understanding and hope.”

“Comme des gens du monde entier, nous sommes profondément affligés aujourd’hui par les horribles tragédies qui se sont produites à Paris. Nous prions pour les victimes, pour leurs familles et leurs êtres chers, pour les dirigeants des pays et, tout particulièrement, pour le peuple de France, qui s’efforce de se remettre de la violence et de la perte qui les touchent si profondément. Nous avons demandé que les drapeaux de Temple Square (Salt Lake City, Utah) soient descendus à mi-mât et que le drapeau français soit hissé pour exprimer aux Français notre amour et notre soutien. Dans ces heures d’incertitude et de désespoir, nous demandons aux membres de l’Église de partout de prier avec nous pour que la paix du Sauveur Jésus-Christ apporte la consolation, la guérison, la compréhension et l’espérance.”
