English prelate condemns rioting, asks for prayers

Catholic World News - August 10, 2011

England’s leading Catholic prelate has condemned the violent rioting that has erupted in urban areas, and exhorted the country’s people to act “with honesty, compassion, and prayer.”

Archbishop Vincent Nichols of Westminster said that looters and hooligans have shown a “callous disregard for the common good,” and the riots illustrate “how easily basic principles of respect and honesty are cast aside." He asked the faithful to pray for those who have been harmed or endangered by the violence.
