Another attack and scores more innocent people killed in a brutal and vicious manner. A celebration of Bastille Day in Nice turned into a killing field by terrorists determined to destroy western civilization.
Our prayers and hearts go out to the victims of the Nice assault and to all the people of France who have suffered so much at the hands of terrorists. We Catholics of the Diocese of Dallas owe much to the French priests and religious who re-evangelized Texas when the Spanish clergy withdrew after the war of independence from Mexico.
We ask our Father to bring peace and security to our world, comfort to the victims in France and in our own city and an end to the turmoil in the a Middle East that has generated so much suffering and death.
