 Pat Gaffney, General Secretary of the British Section of Pax Christi has sent the following message of condolence to the Christian Peacemaker Team in the USA and to the family of Tom Fox. It reads: Dear Christian Peacemaker Team friends, It was with great sadness that today we heard the news of the death of Tom Fox. These must be very difficult times for you all and we in Pax Christi UK hope that you and the family of Tom find the strength and love you need to carry you through your loss. Since our friends were abducted we have been holding weekly vigils in London and around the country - trying to be a sign of hope and witness to the strength and power of nonviolent love in action - so wonderfully lived out by our friends in their commitment to the people of Iraq. These brave men unite people of faith around the world in a common search to discover the nonviolent path to peace in Iraq and beyond. Know that you and the family of Tom are all held in our thoughts and prayers. In solidarity, peace and friendship. In a message to supporters and members across the UK, Pat writes: "We urge our members and others throughout the country to continue to pray and hold public vigils for Norman, Harmeet and James who are still being held hostage in Iraq . At the same time, we must remember the daily violence and abuse that plagues the lives of the ordinary people of Iraq and do all we can to help bring peace with justice to the region."
