Bishop Seitz's Statement on Sutherland Springs Shooting

diocese logo.png

El Paso- Most of us have experienced it; when we go to church to worship God we enter a world that is what we dream life will be.  It is a place where God is honored, hope is restored and strangers become brothers and sisters.  Church is a place where peace and love reign. 

Although facts are still limited regarding the shooter and his motives, it is likely that hatred took possession of his heart. A hate-filled heart cannot tolerate signs of God's kingdom. 

Our prayers go out for those members of the First Baptist Church who have given the ultimate witness. We extend our deepest condolences and offer prayers for each of their grieving families and to the entire community of Sutherland Springs, Texas. 

As with any act of terror we must not allow evil behavior to make us fearful or to prevent us from doing what is right.  Ultimately we know that the love of God will be victorious.   At the same time, we will be proactive in working with our diocesan parishes to ensure Emergency Action Plans are in place and maintained accordingly.

Bp. Mark J. Seitz
Bishop, Diocese of El Paso
