Catholic bishops promised prayers for victims and their families while condemning anti-Semitism, after a shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue Saturday killed 11 people.
"To our brothers and sisters of the Jewish community, we stand with you," said Cardinal Daniel DiNardo of Galveston-Houston, president of U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
"May Almighty God be with them and bring them comfort at this tragic time."
The cardinal, originally a priest of Pittsburgh, condemned the shooting and challenged officials "to confront the plague of gun violence."
