Message from Pope Francis

Regarding Monterey Park Shooting

Most Reverend José H. Gomez
Archbishop of Los Angeles

January 25, 2023

This morning, I received a message from Pope Francis, offering his prayers and condolences for those affected by this weekend’s shooting in Monterey Park. I am grateful and touched by this beautiful expression of our Holy Father’s pastoral concern.

United with our Holy Father and our Blessed Mother, let us continue to pray for those who have died. May God wrap them in his merciful love. Let us continue to pray also for those who were wounded, may God grant them healing. And may God give comfort and consolation to all who are grieving.
