The Holy Father expresses grief at killings at Connecticut school and offers prayers and condolences to the families of the slain

United States Conference of Catholic Bishops

STATEMENT FROM THE VATICAN

"The Holy Father was promptly informed of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown and he has asked me to convey his heartfelt grief and the assurance of his closeness in prayer for the victims and their families, and to all affected by the shocking event.  In the aftermath of this senseless tragedy he asks God, our Father, to console all those who mourn and to sustain the entire community with the spiritual strength which triumphs over violence by the power of forgiveness, hope and reconciling love."

Cardinal Tarcisio Berton, Secretary of State VATICAN
