This is from the Bishops United Against Gun Violence statement on Las Vegas shooting. It says what I am feeling today much more eloquently than I can right now: We join with the people of God in fervent prayer that our country will honor those murdered and wounded in Las Vegas by joining in acts of repentance, healing, and public conversation about the gun violence that has ripped us apart, yet again. I hope you join me in prayer and in striving “for justice and peace among all people” (BCP, p.305).
