Statement of Archbishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller, MSpS, regarding Uvalde elementary school shooting
There are no words to adequately convey the deep sadness and sorrow and overwhelming shock at the incomprehensible loss of life of 18 children and three adults at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde this afternoon at the hands of a young gunman. When will these insane acts of violence end; it is too great a burden to bear. The word tragedy doesn’t begin to describe what occurred. These massacres cannot be considered “the new normal.” The Catholic Church consistently calls for the protection of all life; and these mass shootings are a most pressing life issue on which all in society must act — elected leaders and citizens alike. We pray that God comfort and offer compassion to the families of these little ones whose pain is unbearable. They must know that we are with them and for them. May the Lord have mercy on us all. From the Book of Wisdom, “The souls of the just are in the hands of God. ... They are in peace.”

As we do so, each of us also needs to search our souls for ways that we can do more to understand this epidemic of evil and violence and implore our elected officials to help us take action.”
