Notifying his fellow bishops of "a terrible shooting" in his diocese, Bishop Jaime Soto of Sacramento led them in prayer for the victims during the U.S. bishops' general assembly in Baltimore on Tuesday.
"I would ask if we could take a moment to ask God's mercy not only on those affected by this [incident], but on all affected by gun violence in these times. Let us ask for Mary's intercession for these people," he said Nov. 14, leading those gathered in the Hail Mary.
"Mary, mother of Mercy and Queen of Peace, pray for us," he added.
