Worlock preaches peace in Turin

ARCHBISHOP DEREK Worlock of Liverpool was the chief celebrant at a Mass at the shrine of Our Lady of Consolation in Turin this Tuesday.

The Mass, at which Dr David Sheppard, the Anglican Bishop of Liverpool, was also present, was part of this week's programme of events attended by a "peace delegation" from the City of Liverpool which hopes to heal the wounds caused by the riots at the European Cup Final in Brussels last month, killing 31 Italian fans and seven others.

The Archbishop's opening words at the Mass assured the congregation of the delegation's "sadness and sympathy with egard to the tragedy at Brussels nearly three weeks ago."

"At what better place," he asked, "could we meet than here at the shrine of the patroness of your city, she who can bring to t hose who suffer the true consolation they seek."

Archbishop Worlock referred in his homily to the theme of Pope John Paul's visit to Liverpool: the task of reconciliation. Pointing out that the road between the Anglican and Catholic Cathedrals in Liverpool is Hope Street, he added: "our hope tonight is that out of the disaster of Brussels may come forgiveness, charity and a new sense of purpose for the citizens of Liverpool and Turin."
