United Against Inhuman Terrorists

Brothers and sisters,
Despite the "state of emergency" in France, forbidding any crowd gathering, tens of thousands of Parisians are gathering and uniting on the 6 sites of the bloodshed, and many others in all major cities gather in local landmarks. Thank you all for your support and your prayers. we will overcome

International Grand Commander V

Dear Your Excellency Grand Commander, Dear Brother Marcel.
NATO Grand Priory mourns the victimes of the terrorist crime in Paris and Prays for Them and their Families. A terrorist attack on France is an attack on us all, on our cultures and our free societies. We have together fought for our culture and our freedom before and we will continue to do so. Our solidarity with France will materialize in appropriate supportive actions. Vive la France.

Marcel and friends:
As I reflect on the tragedies of so many killed and more wounded so severely, I am reminded of Psalm 31:1-5: "In you, O Lord, have I taken refuge; let me never be put to shame: deliver me in your righteousness. Incline your ear to me; make haste to deliver me. Be my strong rock, a castle to keep me safe, for you are my crag and my stronghold; for the sake of your Name, lead me and guide me. Take me out of the net that they have secretly set for me, ‎for You are my tower of strength. Into your hands I commend my spirit, for You have redeemed me, O Lord, O God of truth."

O Lord, we call to You; come to us quickly; hear our voices when we cry to You. Let our prayers be set before the Holy One Who hears our grief, hears our suffering, and Who surrounds us in the midst of His‎ loving care. Our eyes are a tuned to the loving care of those who surround the grieving, the wounded, the traumatized. May we reach out in loving care care to those in need. O Lord, guard the door that provides security. May our eyes be turned to You, O Lord God; in You we take refuge. Blessed are those who mourn; for they shall be comforted. Amen.

Dear Brother and Grand Commander Marcel,
I wish to send on to you the condolences of the American Baptist Churches , Chicago Metro Region. In addition I have been in touch with high levels of the Armenian Church and Armenian Cultural associations and they all wish to be included in this email to let you know personally that we stand with Paris and France in solidarity.

More than this we send to you from the deepest parts of our hearts the longing we share with you that the humans must remember we are meant to be noble. With you we call on all good humans to speak up and overcome evil.

We pray that all French people will know that as they are in pain so we too are in pain. We pray that God will give wisdom and courage , as never before, to our world leaders to make the right decisions . May you, dear Marcel, know that we are with you. May the French people feel the waves of compassion coming to them from people of goodwill around the World. Vive La France!

Dear Brother My heart is broken.

Dear Grand Commander,
On behalf of the Priory of The Netherlands sharing you a short message with our deepest sympathy, our heartfelt sorrow with prayers to all our Brothers and Sisters in France and all the people France regarding the attacks yesterday in Paris and those who are effected by this.

An attack on humanity we all have to united against terrorism and united for Peace.

Please accept our heartfelt sorrow.

I just had the latest update of the Dutch news NOS also 3 people from The Netherlands where probably injured in Paris.

Yours Sincerely,

On behalf of all members OSMTH Priory of the Netherlands,

Dear Brothers and Sisters of France and Our Order,
We feel sad to be confronted again with the stupidity of a group of extremists who doesn't care for normal people in this world. The Knights and Dames of the Grand Priory of Belgium are praying for all Brothers and Sisters of the Grand Priory of France and all France.

Think about the proverbe of Paris " Fluctuat Nec Mergitur " "It is storming , but we will not drown"

Keep strong and never be defeated.

Dear Brothers and Sisters of Grand Priory of France,
Me personally, as Greek and as Grand Prior of Grand Priory of Greece, as well as the whole Grand Priory of Greece, but also our country in general, we are shocked by the National tragedy that hit your country. It is unheard nowadays to mourn innocent victims in altar of fanaticism and paranoid attitude and culture of some people who, in the name of “their” God, sacrifice souls who belong to the one and only, common to all, God.

May this God of all of us, even if He is called “ Buda”, even if “God” or “Allah”, to give courage and power to the families of victims, in order for them to suffer the pain and loss of their men, to help your country recover and heal its wounds and to illuminate the brain of the “brainless” who spread fear and unhappiness.

For once more warm condolence and courage.

Dear Marcel,
As I stated to you by telephone last evening I happened to be in Washington DC Friday night at a diplomatic Reception at the Polish Embassy.

The senior diplomats and military attachés from the EU and US were of one voice—this was an act of war and we will stand at the side of France until victory. The Polish Ambassador was clear and moving in his statements that Poland and all democracies will stand side by side with France in this war. To an American this is a matter of honor; in 1917, 1941 and 2015 it is our honor to be with you. We will be there!

Forwarded as an American and with sincere respect.
