3 ways Catholics can respond to gun violence - pray, reflect and act
- Pray - prayer does two things. First it reminds up that our response to violence must always be grounded in love and mercy of Christ. Second it keeps us from despair and gives us hope when we trust our lives to God.
- Reflect - discern how you are being called to action by reflecting on Jesus in the Gospels, the teaching of the Church and the lives of saints. Be informed.
