God is the source of love and life. People who kill in his name are not martyrs or saints, but murderers. Pilgrims from Paris and across France traveled thousands of miles in September to take part in the joy of World of Meeting Families. Their presence graced us all.
We join with the Church in France in this moment of national suffering. I ask the clergy and people of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia to pray in a special way in the coming days for the families of all those killed in Paris.
