Archdiocese of Agana Guam weighs in on N. Korea threat

Father Jeffrey C. San Nicolas

Archdiocese of Agana Message

In the Gospel of John, Jesus states, "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid." (John 14:27).

Following national news reports that North Korea has threatened to strike our island with missiles, the Archdiocese of Agana reminds everyone to stay grounded in the peace of Christ. Look to God during these difficult times when world peace is threatened and pray always.

Please pray that the Holy Spirit will instill in the leaders of our country and all nations the virtues of wisdom and understanding to promote peace rather than war.

We also adjoin ourselves with the message of Governor Eddie Calvo advising our island to remain calm and trust that the security of our island is in good hands with local and national defense forces in place to address such threats.

This is the time for all of us to come together. If a family member, co-worker or neighbor is troubled, take time to talk to them, pray for them and remind them of the providence of Our Lord. We place our complete trust in our God.

Sincerely, Fr. Jeffrey C. San Nicolas Delegate General to the Coadjutor Archbishop
