Mere Anglicanism

Presiding BIshop offers condolences upon the death of Shimon Peres

We in the Episcopal Church join with our brothers and sisters throughout the world in mourning the passing of Shimon Peres.

[29 Sept 2016] We in the Episcopal Church join with our brothers and sisters throughout the world in mourning the passing of Shimon Peres. He will long be remembered as a leader of Israel, a citizen of the world, and as one who shared the Nobel Peace Prize with Yasser Arafat and Yitzhak Rabin, as a man of peace. For that noble work the words of Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount seem appropriate: 

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”

The Most Rev. Michael B. Curry

Presiding Bishop and Primate

The Episcopal Church
