“It is with great sorrow that we witnessed the massacre perpetrated recently in Orlando, Florida. These deplorable murders remind us that such acts of violence are not true paths to peace or justice.
In these difficult times, our Faith calls us to love one another and to stand in solidarity with one another in defense of the sacredness of every human life and the dignity of every human person made in the image and likeness of God.
We lift our prayers to God for all those involved, especially the victims of this horrible tragedy and their families. May our merciful Lord grant healing and peace to them, to our country, and to our world.”
