I am deeply saddened by the shooting this morning at Santa Fe High School. My prayers, along with the prayers of the faithful of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, are with the victims and families of those killed and injured in this horrific tragedy. During this most difficult and challenging time, I know the Archdiocesan community will unite to support and offer healing to those affected. As a society, we must strive for a way to end such acts of senseless gun violence in our schools and communities.
"Where the darkness of death is most thick and impenetrable, the Light shines. This is a mystery of God’s love never to be fully understood, but always to be received with astonished thanksgiving and praise."
“Our faith compels us to stand with the vulnerable, including our immigrant brothers and sisters. We have done so continually, but we must show our support and solidarity now in a special way. Now is the time for action.”
