WITH profound sorrow but with faith in the Resurrection, the CBCP mourns with the families of the gallant policemen, victims of an utterly senseless act of violence in Mindanao, already weary from battle and conflict. Let the grieving families find comfort in the Lord’s promise that none who have been given him will be lost.

While the CBCP vehemently condemns this act of violence against human life no matter what avowed purpose of such violence may be, we cannot side with those who call for the discontinuance of peace talks. If anything, this sad incident underscores the necessity and the urgency of arriving at a solution that is not rushed but that is inclusive, principled and just to all.
