I am deeply shocked and saddened by the events that have occurred this week in Brussels.
The world looks on in disbelief at the appalling actions that have been perpetrated leaving more than 30 people dead and hundreds injured.
The suffering stretches to so many more people with families, friends and entire cities affected both psychologically and emotionally.
On behalf of all my brothers Bishops and Priests and all of the Catholic community of Melbourne, I pass on our sincere sympathies.
Let us ensure our prayers and thoughts are with the people of Brussels at this important time of Easter where we celebrate the resurrection of the Lord Jesus.
Easter Blessings to you all.
Archbishop Denis J. Hart.
