Prayers and Healing for Victims at Florida High School

Bishop Olmsted and Bishop Nevares join the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in praying for the victims of the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Following is a statement from Cardinal Daniel N. DiNardo, Archbishop of Galveston-Houston, and President of the USCCB:

“We are deeply saddened by the shootings in Broward County, Florida, and by the needless and tragic loss of life. May the mercy of God comfort the grieving families and sustain the wounded in their healing. Catholics and many other Christians have begun the journey of Lent today. I encourage us to unite our prayers and sacrifices for the healing and consolation of all those who have been affected by violence in these last weeks and for a conversion of heart, that our communities and nation will be marked by peace. I pray also for unity in seeking to build toward a society with fewer tragedies caused by senseless gun violence. Our hope is in the Lord, as he promised after his resurrection, ‘behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age’ (Mt. 28:20).”
