Dear Parish Family,
Today we mourn the loss of 14 people killed through gun violence in San Bernardino. We can’t fathom what yesterday was like for those who met death so brutally, nor for their families.
There is a quote, often attributed to St. Francis of Assisi, that leads us into the future on difficult days such as today: “Preach the gospel at all times. Use words if necessary.”
Now is the time to use "prayers of action" by joining together to create sensible gun laws that help protect our neighbors and ourselves from irrational acts of wanton violence.
Let's actively move forward to creating a world without random gun violence. We can do it. And we must.
