Bishop Thomas Tobin has written to the priests of the Diocese of Providence asking that special prayers for the victims of the terrorist attack in Orlando be offered at parish Masses this weekend.
In announcing this request, Bishop Tobin added, “In the face of so much violence and pain, we raise our voices to Almighty God seeking his compassion and healing for all the victims of this atrocity. In response to the hatred and fear, and the attacks on human life and dignity we see all too often in our world, we should renew our commitment to be instruments of peace and justice in our own daily lives. We should echo the words of the hymn, Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.”
