Bishop Jaime Soto of Sacramento encouraged city residents to engage in the work of communal healing and helping after a shooting left six dead on Sunday.
Multiple people opened fire in downtown Sacramento around 2 a.m. April 3. Six died in the shooting, and at least 12 more were wounded.
“The suffering inflicted will continue to reverberate among all of us. As senseless as these bloody acts are, let us soberly resist becoming numb to the pain we now share in common,” Bishop Soto said.
“Remember to invest the necessary moral capital that comes from being good neighbors towards one another. As neighbors we ache for the tragedy that has exploded on our streets. As neighbors we must share in the common task of healing and helping. Only then can we restore hope and peace in our communities. This must be our unrelenting response whenever violence wreaks its havoc among us,” he added.
