(NECN) – Metropolitan Methodios of Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Boston spoke at the interfaith service in Boston at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross.

“This past Monday, a day rich with symbolism, a horrific act of terrorism wounded the heart and soul of our city and nation. Thousands from throughout the world were in Boston as participants and spectators of the Marathon…Sadly it was on Patriot’s Day when we celebrate the values of freedom and democracy and the fiercely independent spirit of America, it was on that day that evil reared its ugly head once again, and countless innocent men, women and children fell victim to a senseless and unspeakable act of brutality, but we know that bombs of terrorism may kill and injure but they cannot crush the American spirit.”
