Archbishop Aquila prays for victims and families in mass shooting

Five dead and over a dozen injured in mass shooting at LGBTQ+ nightclub in Colorado Springs

Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila is praying for the victims and families impacted by Saturday night’s mass shooting in Colorado Springs. Archbishop asks that the faithful pray for peace, healing and forgiveness amidst the suffering caused by this evil act. The following is a statement from Archbishop Aquila:

“I am saddened by this tragic and senseless act, and pray that those impacted are able to find peace in Christ. I am reminded of Paul’s letter to the Romans, urging them not to be overcome by evil, but to overcome evil with good. While the motives remain unclear, what is clear is that evil incidents like this have become far too common in our society. The random acts of killing innocent human beings must be condemned by a civil society. As we seek to overcome evil with good, we must promote the dignity of every human being created in the image and likeness of God.”
