Sri Lankan’s Celebrate Mass At Home

Members of the public watched a televised broadcast of the service from their homes, a week after Easter Sunday bombings in hotels and churches across the island killed more than 250 people.

Cardinal Malcolm Randith, the archbishop of Colombo, delivered a homily from a small chapel at his residence.

“This is a time our hearts are tested by the great destruction that took place last Sunday,” he said.

“This is a time questions such as, does God truly love us, does He have compassion towards us, can arise in human hearts.”

The Mass was attended by President Maithripala Sirisena, prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and opposition leader Mahinda Rajapaksa – a rare show of unity in a fearful time for the nation.
