USCCB President reacts to “Unspeakable Violence” in Orlando: Offers Prayers for the Victims

 

June 12, 2016

Waking up to the unspeakable violence in Orlando reminds us of how precious human life is.  Our prayers are with the victims, their families and all those affected by this terrible act.  The merciful love of Christ calls us to solidarity with the suffering and to ever greater resolve in protecting the life and dignity of every person.

Bishop Murry has asked that the following Universal Prayer (Prayers of the Faithful) be used this coming weekend at all of the Masses.


For the victims of violence and terror, especially those in Orlando, for those who mourn their loss, and for an end to hatred and hostility among all people…we pray to the Lord.
