Quote of the Day: ‘These attacks represent a grave warning…’

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 11/06/17

“My friends, these attacks represent a grave warning to our common society. We must collectively look within ourselves and reexamine the premises upon which our society functions.

When any society tolerates an attitude that does not protect and respect human life, is comfortable with a prevalent attitude that ‘my life is all about me,’ and allows people to slip into the shadows of loneliness, isolation and despair, my great fear is that such attacks will only continue, with perhaps even greater and graver consequences.

There is a better way for society to conduct itself. That way has a name. He is Jesus the Lord.”

— Bishop Frank Caggiano, Diocese of Bridgeport, on Facebook
