Pope calls for commitment from everyone "so that such tragedies can never happen again."
At the end of the May 25 general audience, Pope Francis shared a word about the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.
“My heart is broken by the massacre,” the Holy Father said. “I pray for the children and adults killed, and their families.”
The Pope added: “It is time to say ‘no more’ to the indiscriminate trafficking of guns. Let us all commit ourselves so that such tragedies can never happen again.”
