Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone statement on the attack of Mr. Paul Pelosi

On Friday, October 28, Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone responded to the attack on Mr. Paul Pelosi on Twitter: “Please join me in praying for the swift recovery of Paul Pelosi and comfort for his wife and family too. Mother Mary hear our prayer.”

Archbishop Jose H. Gomez, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, also released a statement echoing Archbishop Cordileone’s call for prayers:

“I join with Archbishop Cordileone in offering my prayers for the full recovery of Paul Pelosi and comfort for his family following the terrible attack that occurred earlier this morning. I am deeply grieved over this violence, which should have no place in our communities, our political process, or our great nation. May Our Lady of Perpetual Help intercede for us, provide healing, and guide us to paths of peace.”
