In Response to the Act of Violence at Santa Fe High School

BY ISN STAFF | May 18, 2018

In response to the shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas on Friday, May 18, 2018, we offer a few resources (NOTE: This list is not exhaustive) on gun violence and Catholic teaching on this issue.

This resource was initially developed in 2012 after the tragic shootings at the movie theater in Aurora, Colorado and at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut and in February of 2018 after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

As a network of individuals and institutions committed to justice and peace, we join the entire country in praying for the victims, their families, and those responsible, particularly in light of the continued epidemic of gun violence in the U.S.— and for hope that we can collectively work for a more peaceful world.

Prayer and Reflection Resources:

“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.”

Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta
