Statement from Cardinal Wuerl on Navy Yard Shootings
September 16, 2013
I join people of all faiths across our community in praying for the people killed and wounded in the attack at the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C. I also pray for the family members and friends of the victims, as well as the first responders and emergency workers at the scene. While many facts are still unknown, our most powerful tool right now is prayer. The Church always calls us to prayer, particularly in moments of crisis. It is what we do best because it is what the Lord asks us to do.
