I’ve been "googling" on the Internet, trying to find the full transcript of the statement the Schindler family gave at the press conference yesterday. No luck so far (if someone reading this knows a source, please tell me), but I did find this report that included two specific portions I was looking for:
Please continue to pray that God gives grace to our family as we go
through this very difficult time. Following the example of
the Lord Jesus, our family abhors any violence or any threats of
violence. Threatening words dishonor our faith, our family, and our
sister, Terri. We would ask that all those who support our family be
completely kind in their words and deeds toward others….
Throughout this ordeal, we are reminded of the words of Jesus on the
cross: "Father forgive them for they know not what they do." Our family
seeks forgiveness for anything that we have done in standing for
Terri’s life that has not demonstrated the love and compassion required
of us by our faith.
May the Comforter bring this family peace by His sweet presence. Amen.
