I offer these fumbling, anemic words for the people of Newtown, Connecticut.
We’re upset and afraid. For this moment, without intending to rebuke or argue, could I ask each of us to set aside politicized subjects, and focus on the poor people who are devastated by violence?
May the Lord bless them with compassion and healing. May God bless each of you with a peace that passes understanding.
And may he “bless all the dear children in His tender care, and take us to heaven to be with Him there.”
