Bishop Barry C. Knestout’s Statement on the Fatal Shooting at the University of Virginia
“As we once again mourn the loss of human lives due to an act of violence, I ask everyone to pray for those killed Sunday night on the UVA campus, their families and the entire UVA community. Like you, I grieve for the loss of life and my heart breaks for the suffering caused by this troubling act.
“While we await more details from school and law enforcement officials, let us reflect on how violence permeates the culture in which we live, and our efforts to promote peace within our society. May our Blessed Mother, Queen of Peace, intercede for us.”
