Archbishop Gustavo statement about deaths of 53 people

We pray for the souls of the 53 people who died in such a cruel, inhuman manner on June 27, and also keep in prayer the 11 survivors – adults and children – as well as their families and all of the first responders who assisted and saved lives and must now carry with them the memories of this scene of carnage. I urge all in the archdiocese to unite in solidarity, as these brothers and sisters are members of our family. We also ask the Lord for mercy and understanding in this time of trial and suffering, still remembering our beloved in Uvalde. Give us the strength Lord to do your will. Help us O God.

Declaración del Arzobispo Gustavo sobre la muerte de 53 personas 

Oramos por las almas de las 53 personas que murieron de manera cruel e inhumana a Junio 27, y también nos mantenemos en oración por los 11 sobrevivientes, adultos y niños, así como por sus familias y por todos los socorristas que ayudaron y salvaron vidas, y que ahora deben llevar consigo los recuerdos de esta escena de matanza. Exhorto a todos en la Arquidiócesis a unirse en solidaridad, ya que estos hermanos y hermanas son miembros de nuestra familia. Pidamos también al Señor misericordia y comprensión en este tiempo de prueba y sufrimiento, recordando aún a nuestro amados hermanos en Uvalde. Danos la fuerza, Señor, para hacer tu voluntad. Ayúdanos, oh Dios.
