There are no words that can adequately convey our sense of sorrow at the horror in Connecticut. We mourn for and with the victims of [Friday’s] shooting and pray for the fulfillment of Christ’s promise in the Sermon on the Mount:
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.”
May God bless the parents and families of Sandy Hook Elementary School.
