We Join our Hearts in Prayer

 

Our hearts and prayers go out to all those personally affected by the brutal tragedy which occurred on Friday, December 14, at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. 

Words fail us at a time such as this, but we are confident in God’s love and presence among us as well as in the goodness He has put into our human nature.  Christ’s Cross and Resurrection remind us that goodness always prevails over evil.  May the loss of the lives of these “holy innocents”, as well as those who gave their lives to protect them in Newtown, join us together in always expressing love and in seeking peace.
