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.

    His Eminence Daniel Cardinal DiNardo, Principal Celebrant

    The Red Mass tradition dates from the 11th century and received its name from the red color of the vestments worn by the priest celebrants and the scarlet robes worn by the Lord High Justice.  In the United States today, an annual Red Mass is celebrated in most major metropolitan areas and is attended by judges, lawyers, public officials, law school faculty and law students. Members of the judiciary and legal profession of all faiths are welcome to attend the Red Mass.

    Tickets are available online for the optional Red Mass Dinner. Learn more at
