Following Murder of Catholic Bishop, Patriarch Bartholomew Is Not Afraid

It was with much sadness that Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew received news of the murder of Catholic Bishop Luigi Padovese on June 1, 2010. Responding to the questions of reporters on the island of Imvros, where the Patriarch was when he received the news, on whether or not he feared for his own life, the Patriarch said he was not afraid and believed in God's providence, Who protects us, together with the saints who pray for us.
