Daniel Cardinal DiNardo statement on human trafficking deaths in San Antonio

With a heavy heart, I offer my condolences to the victims discovered this past weekend in San Antonio. As Archbishop Garcia-Siller expressed, there are no words to convey the sadness and despair involved with such an incomprehensible tragedy. My prayers are with the families of the deceased and for those injured in this horrific incident. May God have mercy on all victims of human trafficking; let us pray for an end to this most horrific crime against humanity.
